TECH SUPPORT, written and directed by Debra Whitfield, had its Off-Broadway premiere at 59E59 Theaters from August, 29–September 21, 2019.
Life has become too complicated for technophobe and antique book seller, Pamela Stark. Pam's world is soon turned upside down when, instead of providing assistance with her printer, the tech support guy, "Chip," offers her choices for different centuries. In each era, this reluctant time-traveler saves lives, as she is hurled from decade to decade. Pam's emotional and witty journey finally ends with one last rescue--her own.
