Taking place in 2018, “Untethered” follows Celeste, a freshly divorced woman now working in a grocery store who finds comfort in a flirty online relationship with Bee, a rural Magic the Gathering fan in search of both community and connection. They meet through an app called Tethered, and the cast includes virtual counterparts of the two main characters.
“It’s such a supportive and progressive queer-centered story,” director and longtime Western drama professor Kamarie Chapman said. “The idea of creating theatre for all humans shouldn't be that new, but the trend now is for playwrights to take that control and encourage makers to go for it. I think it's a refreshing change when looking at new scripts.”
