All in the Mind previews a world where individual consciousness has been woven into a collective web of telepathic communication. Written in 1981, playwright Robert Patrick anticipates virtual and augmented reality and shared consciousness. Echoing the science fiction worlds of Philip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov All in the Mind envisions a world in which all of humanity shares every birth, death, sunrise, and sunset in a common experience. Here too, there is the sinister underpinning of the unconnected “nurses” who exist offstage, in Antarctica. Yet the wit and humor of the pieces pervade the dystopian atmosphere, leaving open the question of whether the technologically enhanced future is an improvement or not–an ambivalence we all live with today.
