It is difficult to avoid “plugging in” to the digital landscape every hour of every day. Entertainment, banking, maps, relationships,
car rides, communication, and so many other fundamental elements of life depend on technology.
Can you escape the digital rabbit hole? Cry Havoc Theater Company's newest creation, 20/20 VISION, is suitable for
audiences ages 10 and above. Grab your tickets online.
