This was a fun romantic comedy playing on the differences between a guy who doesn’t use social media or own a cell phone (Jesse Nobess) and a girl who is constantly Tweeting, Texting and posting her way through life (Reba Terlson). One of the really interesting parts of the play is the two main characters are joined by Sam McLean who acts as a live action version of Terlson’s smartphone. He makes sound effects and performs physical expressions for her swiping, texting, posting, commenting, picture and selfie taking. Between scenes he becomes physical manifestations of some popular internet memes.

The prospective couple tries to spend a date in each other’s world, and the two dates are jump-cut together with good effect. All in all a good story with a lot of humour and timely subject matter.
