Unit Set/Multiple Settings

In a summer devoid of friends, money and fun, a teenage girl, KID, starts a blog about her apartment building. Using photography, recordings, and online searches she begins to pry deep into the lives of the neighbors that surround her, including her father that she never knew existed. The deeper she goes, the more oddities and mysteries emerge, and soon KID is forced to emerge into the real world, and what began as a lark soon becomes dangerous. T.I.C. (TRENCHCOAT IN COMMON) is a wild yet sweet comedy about grappling with adulthood, grief, and surviving in a culture of voyeurism and exhibitionism and where privacy is no longer an option.
"Vastly entertaining! Nachtrieb is a particularly skilled observer of the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life, illuminating minutiae in a way so that it becomes significantly faceted. He also has a wry, likable sense of humor that pulls an audience happily into the action." —Bay Area Reporter. "Nachtrieb's script is packed with comic creativity. Sure, all adults can seem creepy to a dislocated teen, but the other tenants in Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's hilarious T.I.C. (TRENCHCOAT IN COMMON) may be not only stranger but also more dangerous than their observer imagines." —San Francisco Chronicle. "As he's riffing wildly on contemporary issues and big ideas, humanity sneaks in; the stories are at once outlandish and very real." —American Theatre Magazine. "[A] stunning new play…Nachtrieb has a keen eye for popular culture as lived on the streets and subdivided properties of San Francisco, where people are willing to give up much privacy and a fair share of dignity to hang on and live la vida urban in the city that is the spiritual home of cable cars and Rice-A-Roni." —Contra Costa Times. "The show has a forward-thinking, shiny flair. Basically we're all 'voyeurs' when going to the theater, and T.I.C. (TRENCHCOAT IN COMMON) becomes eye-opening, indeed." —Fresno Bee.
