Co-Op Theatre East Debuts a staged Reading of Building A Real Boy, A New Documentary Theatre Play About the Life and Work of Computer Prodigy and Activist Aaron Swartz

Devised collaboratively by Co-Op Theatre East ensemble members Tyrus Holden, Ashley Marinaccio, and Michael Rehse, through Swartz’s own writings, Building A Real Boy is a multimedia theatrical telling of the life and work of computer activist Aaron Swartz who died tragically at the age of 26 while facing forty years in prison for downloading academic journals. Building A Real Boy sheds light on critical issues surrounding freedom of information, and internet privacy, in addition to the power of youth in fighting oppressive political systems.
