Type Cast is a short digital play performed as a constructed dialogue between two individuals, each wearing typographic clothing in conversation with each other.

Conceived and directed by John Pobojewski, the piece explores the relationship between letters, personality, emotion, and stereotype. Throughout the dialogue, the two actors challenge each others’ expectations, and begin to lose faith in their mental image of what each other stands for — both for the good and for the bad. The piece was premiered at Typeforce 11 in Chicago.
