When: Feb. 17-29 2016
Price: $32–$50

Acclaimed Bay Area playwright Mark Jackson turns his attention to Bay Area tech culture in Little Erik, a family drama that plumbs a slew of weighty topics throughout its eighty-minute run. Currently showing at Aurora Theater (2081 Addison St., Berkeley) through February 28, the play centers on Joie (Marilee Talkington), a hot-shot tech executive whose love for her son, Erik, comes second to her devotion to her iPhone. Joie’s husband, Freddie (Joe Estlack), isn’t much better — he’d much rather travel the world aimlessly and dream about the past than maintain a presence in little Erik’s life. When tragedy strikes at their home just north of San Francisco, both realize that they’ve been substituting authentic personal connections for artificial ones. Despite lackluster chemistry between Talkington and Estlack, the otherwise gripping play delivers biting commentary about the consequences of a society consumed by technology.
