Craving human contact in the COVID age? Want to get away from it all? Dial in to the Human Resources hotline, and our operators will enlighten, amuse or even inspire you--your choice.
Together with the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company and Telephonic Literary Union, The Rep presents a unique and interactive audio experience. Accessible only by cell phone, Human Resources allows each audience member to select among a series of unorthodox options in a twist on the traditional customer-service phone maze. Based on the prompts each caller chooses, the quirky journey can be silly or serious, thought-provoking or frivolous, perplexing or straightforward, but always surprising.
--Human Resources is not a traditional theatre experience. Each participant has the opportunity to direct their own journey through the helpline, spending as much or as little time as desired.
--Your ticket gives you access to the Human Resources phone line for four days from the time you receive your access code. Call in as many times as you like to discover different experiences.
--The interactive possibilities in Human Resources make it best experienced on a smartphone. Within the journey, you may be disconnected, texted or prompted to continue. Have fun with it!
Each ticket costs $7 and requires a private access code, which can be purchased through The Rep box office by calling 314-968-4925 or online at repstl.org. Your ticket gives you access to the Human Resources phone line for four days from the time you receive your access code. TLU recommends using a cell phone for full functionality. Each menu option offers a distinct experience. Explore at your own pace, hang up and call back any time. There is no optimal order or predetermined run time. The experience was designed to reward exploration and, in some cases, tenacity. Follow your own curiosity to discover hidden treasures buried within the phone tree.
