‘What Do We Need to Talk About?’ post-Covid Zoom play

In his new play “What Do We Need to Talk About? The Apple Family: Conversations on Zoom,” which was live-streamed by the Public and YouTube, playwright-director Richard Nelson has brought together characters from a former piece, but each is now isolated in their upstate homes during this pandemic, connected only through the internet for this joint family call. With this play written during the last few months, Nelson creates the first original internet play that deftly responds to the form and the times.
