About Play!

Play! is an interactive homage to the importance of radical play for a healthy society. What do mass murderers have in common? They are play-deprived. What happens to lab rats when you deprive them of play? They die. The answer to inefficiency is not more work, it’s play. And the opposite of play is not work, it’s depression. Come PLAY! with us. Play! is an interactive dance-theatre piece co-created by Charles Mee, Erin B. Mee, Jonathan Matthews, and Ezra Brain, with additional text by Stuart Brown, Frederick Winslow Taylor, and Buzzfeed. Performed by Jonathan Matthews. Play! runs at TheatreLab from September 7 to September 29. Play! runs in rep with This Is Not A Theatre Company's other interactive piece Theatre In The Dark: Carpe Diem.
