"All New Cells" - a New Play by Aliza Goldstein


Thu Jun 01 2023 at 11:30 am to 01:30 pm


Theatre Off Jackson | Seattle, WA

When Nils's ex-girlfriend dies suddenly, he is dragged back into a toxic online roleplay scene he swore he'd never return to. He'd been doing okay sticking to his seven-year plan for getting over their breakup - but now, everyone either blames him or expects him to have answers, and he's getting nasty anonymous messages that might be coming from beyond the grave. A nuanced examination of identity, trauma, assault, grief, and mental health through an online world. Featuring Kasper Cergol as Nils; Zenaida Rose Smith as Lux; Jasmine Lomax as Aeon; and Kay Taylor Yelinek as Moody.
"All New Cells" contains references to suicide, child sexual abuse and self harm, which are discussed, but not depicted; themes include transphobia and online bullying.
All New Cells is a powerful story of disconnection and search for identity, contrasting how we live IRL and how we present to the online world. An exploration of queer identity in a queer affinity space as well as the ways in which the digital ghosts of our past come back to haunt us.
