Part of Subilicious, Fringe World Festival 2019
Presented by Phoenix Theatre Inc
Hearing voices is never a good thing, unless the voices are coming from your squip. No, not script --- squip.
A supercomputer the size of a tic-tac. Swallow the computer and become cool. Get all the girls, or guys. Dress sharp. Learn to flirt, drive, and generally BE MORE CHILL.
In BE MORE CHILL, achieving the “perfect life” is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology—but it comes at a cost that’s not as easy to swallow. This is a high school-set musical that uses a brain altering super-computer — masquerading as a popularity drug — as a plot device to poke satirical fun at the all-consuming, all-connecting dangers of faceless social media and needy groupthink.
Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about “The Squip” – a quantum nanotechnology CPU that promises to bring him everything he desires most. Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all our heads. And ultimately proves, there’s never been a better time in history to be yourself.
If popularity came in a pill, would you take it, no questions asked?
