Schrodinger’s Catfish

The Overtime Theater presents a science fiction romance written by Lemuel Mitchell and directed by Dave Stone-Robb. In a formless online space, two virtual avatars meet cute on a first date, and debate the probability that either one of them could be a human or a deceptively well scripted AI. At a fledgling start up, two tech devs launch a new dating app, and descend into the total amorality necessary to attract investors to their infant business. In an urban apartment, a young couple chooses between the real world love they have for each other and the simulation of love that beckons from the virtual world. The lines between simulation and reality blur as the plots converge with chaotic results. Comedy, philosophy, science fiction, and romance blend in this mind-bending exploration of love in the age of the never-ending Turing test.

Performances run May 3 – May 25, 2024, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, with one Sunday matinee on May 19 at 3 PM, and Pay-What-You-Will night on Thursday, May 9 at 8 PM. The Overtime Theater is located at 5409 Bandera Road, Suite 205 on the city’s northwest side. General admission tickets are $18, or $12 for SATCO members, military and students with a valid ID.
