The play, “The Memory Tax,” was written by San Jose native Chad Eschman, who recently finished his masters of fine art at Northwestern University. He met his artistic collaborators — Scotty Arnold, Lauren Baines, Devin Bertsch and Matthew Johns — when they were all students at SCU’s Department of Theatre and Dance. Eschman, Baines, Bertsch and Johns later founded the San Jose-based Cardboard Box Theatre Project, which workshopped the play a few years ago. They were all brought back together this spring when “The Memory Tax” was selected as one of six plays to be presented through the Araca Project, which provides opportunities for emerging theater artists. Of course, now they — and three other members of the creative team — are spread across several cities in three states, necessitating the mostly electronic link. They’re even fundraising for the show with PayPal and crowd-funding site Indiegogo.
