Leos Ensemble Theatre presents Ten Arguments
Ten Arguments takes the form of a series of ten sketches set over the last decade, all about the ways social media is undermining our lives. It’s MadTV crossed with The Colored Museum wrapped up in uncle's conspiracy Twitter rants. Audiences will meet Saturday and Sunday, siblings who have to let their subscribers know that the star of their channel, their grandpa, is dead (Social Media Hates Your Soul), they’ll see Joaquin Phoenix head to clown school in Dallas’ Deep Ellum Comedy District (Social Media Is Undermining Truth), and check in on Post Malone’s work at the Dallas Branch of the NAACP (Social Media is Making You Unhappy).
Ten Arguments is a world premiere by Oak Cliff-based playwright A. Emmanuel Leadon, conceived by Nick Leos, and loosely framed by technology activist Jaron Lanier’s Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts.
