Helvetica: The Digital Experience
While we had to cancel our live performances of the Georgia Premiere of Will Coleman’s Helvetica due to COVID-19 concerns, we are so excited to launch a complete digital experience of the play that you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of home!
ABOUT THE SHOW
Helvetica is a new work written by Will Coleman and is a dramatic “play about stories.” Helvetica is introduced in three different times and how her experiences tell her story. Along with her favorite teddy bear, Myron, Helvetica journeys through her life struggles and reminds herself that to prevail, it’s important to hold onto what makes you special. Myron helps narrate the story of Helvetica — a children’s book author in the present; a precocious, imaginative child in the past; a sick and deflated artist in the future — by interweaving stories, slices from each time period, into one “book.”
Available Digitally: March 20 – May 10, 2020
Run Time: 98 Minutes
Rating: Recommended for ages 16+ (Strong Language, Mature Themes)
