A 60 minute masterpiece, a computer-age Lord of the Flies. The writing is taut, vivid, cool, scary and often funny.'
‘Chatroom’ is a chilling and powerful tale of manipulation and the ultimate act of teenage rebellion. Direct and honest, the play is intensely alive to the possibilities and pressures we face on the verge of adulthood.
In cyberspace six bored teenagers type and chat. The chatroom is safe, a neutral space; no-one knows each other, no-one uses their real name and people move fluidly from room to room. However a chance on-line encounter with a group of bored teenagers exposes an innocent fifteen year old to a dangerous world of coercion and control.
Walsh’s black comedy unearths the dark underbelly of the internet and provides a brilliantly insightful window into the world of teenage politics.
