La Mama Presents The Joy of Text


Originally performed at the MTC, Robert Reid weaves an intelligent dialogue of conniving deception created by the protagonist, Danny.

Danny is a high school student. Danny’s smart, very smart. So intelligent in fact that people ridicule his constant thirst for knowledge. Incensed, Danny decides to enact a revenge of his own kind. Disguised as an innocuous text, Danny uncovers a controversial student/teacher relationship at school. The question is: what will he do?
