Synopsis/Details: 

"OK, who cares if my every keystroke, conversation, comment, post and perhaps even my thoughts are closely monitored and Data Mined?"

Thanks to ever more invasive Big Tech and lax governmental oversight, our personal privacy seems to be a thing of the past. From those of us who remain uncomfortable with this brave new digital reality, I here offer a short-short which may give you pause to think about who will control our lives and manage our opinions in the near future.

Three pages, one actor, one location (a small apartment), minimal props, some computer screen shots AND a shower scene with male nudity.

These are essentially Director's Cuts written in not-so-wordy prose. As a FREE sample, see Zentangles , a cautionary... Go to bio
