    Innovative, unorthodox and literally engaging, MONO uses all 360 degrees of Surf Reality, transforming it into a typical L.E.S. hangout where the action takes place in front of, behind, beside and sometimes on top of the audience — -who act as "patrons" in a bar where the management invites you to turn your cell phones on, open a tab and tap into the rhythm of a nightly ritual. In a dark corner, the NERD IN LEATHER PANTS is humping the leg of his girlfriend, the SADO-NANNY. At the other end of the bar, an URBANOLOGIST cotton-swabs you for samples; as TWO CHICKS carry on a very public mating dance while; at a candlelit table, an abandoned MUTE stares lovingly into the seductive button-eyes of a TWO-TIMING FRENCH SOCK PUPPET as her sister, the REHAB DROPOUT, buys another drink with a stolen credit card. As the night progresses, the room becomes smokier; drinks are downed quicker; and you realize that even in the middle of a densely packed bar, we're all alone. In spite of cell phones, instant messages and all the other technological toys at our disposal, personal communication has not gotten any easier; but that won't stop these 13 solitary characters from their desperate attempts to connect with somebody — as Al Green echoes their ache on the soundtrack every time he sings the looped phrase, LOVE AND HAPPINESS.
