I always try my hardest to see new emerging plays. Having worked in performing arts education for over three years, I fully comprehend the degree of training, enthusiasm and finance required to make it as an actor. It's an extremely hard, competitive industry; I often wonder whether my level of commitment would remain as strong as others if I had gone down this career path myself.
Back in July, one of our contributors Paul Taylor went to watch a play on online dating. Likewise, You Tweet My Face Space is a new satirical comedy that also highlights our digital media consumption, as well as the consequences of having our entire lives in the public domain (which I think nearly everyone can empathise with at some point in their life).
Set in a typical London flat, Dave's relationship with Charlotte comes crashing down when a controversial photo of him appears online. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and others show up one after another in attempt to help remedy the situation but ultimately end up making things worse. Caught in the middle of this fray, Dave must overcome his fears of committing to something real and face the power of procrastination.
Tom Hartwell says "Influences of our newly connected works are becoming more prevalent in across all artistic platforms because the material is so relatable; everyone and their gran are now on Facebook."
You Tweet My Face Space is part of the Camden Fringe Festival and will run 19th-22nd August 2015 from 6pm at The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar, London. Tickets available here >>
