Where were you when the Covid-19 pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020? What was your initial reaction? How did it feel to be separated from your loved ones? How thankful are you that Zoom was in existence? In Richard Nelson’s Zoom play What Do We Need to Talk About?, the Apple Family siblings Barbara, Richard, Marian, and Jane, and her partner Tim are among the millions of beneficiaries of this technology that made pandemic loneliness less lonely. They gather for an online reunion with their respective dinners and wine. The predictable discussions about all things pandemic occur, but what gradually surfaces is their longing to not only survive a deadly virus, but gain a better understanding of the life they want to preserve. Topics include: Covid-19 pandemic, technology, communication, family dynamics, trauma from illness and loss, and life reevaluation.
