Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before.

In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know in a new play from Caryl Churchill, one of the UK’s most influential playwrights.


In an exciting collaboration between the University of Nevada, Reno's Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Computer Science Robotics Research Lab, the upcoming inception will investigate actor-robot interaction onstage in recognition of today’s critical use of valuable technology co-mingled with the desire for heartfelt connection.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present, & Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
