This Sci-Fi Comedy Will Remind You of the Power of Human Connection – Do Not Miss Out

Landing Local Home Tours presents intimate original plays written for and performed in residential homes. This Saturday, see the company’s latest installment, Override by Elizbeth A.M. Keel, at Sawyer Heights Lofts!

Landing Local Home Tours is now on its fourth micro project in this long-form format, specifically commissioning local playwrights to develop new work. For this project, the company has enlisted the extensive talents of local playwright Elizabeth A.M. Keel, who has penned a funny, sensual romantic comedy about the power of human touch.

Override is a sweet, sci-fi romantic comedy, and is a reminder about the power of contact through the body, heart, and mind. Louise is a student at the prestigious Academy of Invention, attempting to construct a machine that can emulate human touch. But when her prototype goes haywire, she must turn to her biggest competition for help: her neighbor Grav, who works on popular, commercial, food-based inventions. As the night evaporates around them, they race to solve the bugs in Louise's machine.

Override will be initially performed at its originating location at the Sawyer Heights Lofts, then tour to two other residential venues throughout Houston; south in Meyerland and north in Lindale Park for limited performances. Performing in these venues creates an intimate, immersive theatre experience where the audience sits in the home where the story takes place, and watches the drama unfold.

Elizabeth Ann Michaela Keel is a native Houstonian, as well as a playwright, director, actress, dramaturg, producer, and novelist. Her plays have been produced by Otherworld Theatre Company (Chicago), Stages Repertory Theatre, Mildred's Umbrella, METDance, Squeaky Bicycle (NYC), T.E.T.A., Landing Theatre Company, Cone Man Running, This Is Water Theatre, Nova Arts Project, Bootown, Fresh Produce’d (NYC), and 14 Pews, among others. She has published two novels: Running Into Trouble and Life After Myth. Elizabeth is proud to serve as the Houston Ambassador for the Dramatists Guild.
