The VORTEX launches its 35th season with the world premiere of Edit Annie by Mary Glen Fredrick, directed by Will Detlefsen, an NNPN directing fellow for three weeks only.

Agoraphobic video editor Annie finally meets Clara, the influencer she’s been editing remotely for years. As their relationship blossoms, Clara seems to be the salvation Annie's been waiting for - but her best friend Dana isn't so sure. This dark comedic thriller descends deep into Annie’s mind and interrogates the loneliness of living with screens, the implications of being able to edit every aspect of yourself, and what’s “real” in a digital age.

Our increasingly-digital landscape invites us to do this revising: to erase imperfections, delete all but the highlight reel, and be lulled into the picture-perfect version of the story. But what wounds does this erasure carve onto our psyches? For all of its theatrical elements, Edit Annie is a story about loneliness and longing to connect.
