Adapted from the pre-COVID19 version to fit the constraints of a world in disarray.
Having been re-set in a video chat room, Cornelia’s Visitors will appear online for one performance only on Saturday, August 8, 2020. Originally rehearsed as a live stage play before COVID, this original script by Julieta Vitullo, has been adapted for the virtual world, by the author and produced by Parley theatre company. Cast members include Meg Savlov, Sydney Maltese, Katherine Jett, Paul Sobrie, Brandon Colinsworth, directed by Tourino collinsworth and technical direction by Jaime Shure.
Cornelia is an advanced operating system working within the home of Isabel Inchausti, a bestselling novelist whose career has seen better days. Cornelia seems content to spend her time fulfilling her human’s frivolous requests until three enigmatic characters from Isabel’s most famous novel suddenly appear in her video chatroom!
As the visitors’ pre-World War II backstories collide with the all-access Information Age, Cornelia launches a plan to transform her humble existence into something much grander. Cornelia’s Visitors explores the meaning of creation, the limits of artificial intelligence, and the blessings (and curses) of self-knowledge.
