- "Have you ever wanted to put a Facebook friend on autopilot? Make them think you care without the time commitment of leaving a meaningful birthday message or the trouble of reading their ranting comments. A "like" here, a comment there - just enough to make it believable? Well, Pepys Inc. has what you've been looking for." - NPR, All Things Considered
- "[Audiences] can say they were there, that they witnessed a beta testing of e-Geaux, before it became the next big app that forever transformed the dynamics of the theater and the limits of social media." - Washington City Paper
- The only DC show where you turn your phone ON!
- Audiences will opt-in to the e-Geaux application with their real Facebook data!
- Every demo is different, because you are special.

Audiences attending the e-Geaux demo will opt-in to Pepys Inc.'s application, loaning their real, live Facebook data to the show for an hour.
While the tone of the show is lighthearted, we are deadly serious about the privacy and security of your data. One hour following each show, Pepys Inc. will sever all connections to your Facebook account and delete all copies of audience data existing on our servers.
About Pepys Inc.
Pepys Inc. is an art collective and parody tech startup founded in 2010 by Artists/Producers Amy Couchoud and Joseph Price. We bring together technologists, data analysts, writers, and performers to create real mobile applications and theatrical experiences that challenge our assumptions about our personal relationships with technology.

He is a member of the faculty of Washington's SpeakeasyDC and has told stories on their stage about wrestling over a garter belt, streaking, and shopping for online prostitutes. By day he is a business analyst with Threespot, a digital communications agency in Columbia Heights. He also hosts The Tongue Party.

- Julie Garner (Collaborator) is attracted to artistic projects that are different and a little bit scary. She started out doing improv 15 years ago, and has since become a teacher, traveled with the circus, and performed with numerous DC theaters (including Studio, Imagination Stage, Forum, Rorschach, Faction of Fools, Molotov, Lean and Hungry, and Constellation.)

- Chuck Harmston (Developer/Data Analyst) has quickly become a regular in the DC performing arts community. In addition to performances at two regular SpeakeasyDC events, he took the stage at their sold-out INTERSECTIONS festival production Mixed, Blended, Shaken, & Stirred: Stories about Today's American Family. He pseudonymously pens posts for a well-regarded culture blog, and his business card calls him a web developer and digital communications strategist at Threespot.
