800 Words: The Transmigration of Philip K. Dick

by VICTORIA STEWART

Summary

800 Words: The Transmigration of Philip K. Dick is a reinvention of the last few days of Philip K. Dick, the science fiction author. Based on a true story, the play begins just as Philip’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is to be released as the Hollywood film Blade Runner. Using theatrical transformations, the play is structured so that memories and events bleed into each other, fusing and merging in Philip’s internal landscape. He weaves in and out of reality until there is no discerning what really happened in February of 1974. 800 Words: The Transmigration of Philip K. Dick is about God, art, madness, time, fiction and reality.
