I Google Myself at Under St. Mark's
Theatre Askew presents I Google Myself, by Jason Schafer, opening at Under St. Mark's from 21 Jun 2007, following previews from 14 Jun and running through to 7 Jul 2007.
I Google Myself is the unusual story of three very different men with the same name. One is a gay porn star with a dirty little secret. One is a stoner mechanic who blogs poetry and has anger management issues. And another is a wily stalker with a balloon fetish, desperate to make a connection. Their worlds collide when one man Googles his own name to find others who share his moniker. What he discovers leads to an unforgettable, ripped-from-the tabloids chain of events that will leave you asking yourself: what would I do to become a top search term on Google?
Directed by Jason Jacobs, I Google Myself features Reed Prescott, Tim Cusack, and John Gardner.
Set design by Robin Vest, with costumes by Dan Urlie, lighting by Charles Fosterand sound by Matthew Pritchard.
