About this show

Tennis balls fly as four actors wrestle with the relentless rush of words streaming from their headphones. Part sporting event, part theatrical séance, A Supposedly Fun Thing… draws exclusively from audio recordings of writer David Foster Wallace, mixed live during each performance. Wallace's work, as translated by Daniel Fish and the performers, asks us: how present can we be? How generous in the way we experience the cacophony of our world?
