The North American premiere of Kennedy Browne's latest work, The Myth of the Many in the One which was shot in the summer of 2012 in California. This newly scripted work draws on the genre of the business biography, attempting to decode the myth of the visionary leader of technological progress and his place in our culture. Working on location with a child actor and a voice-over artist, Silicon Valley is a significant mental and emotional backdrop to this narrative.
