Cleanse: a new play about the internet
May 21 - May 23$12
Courtney loves the internet but hates what it’s doing to her. In order to reclaim control of her offline life, she must face her online past — the awkward chats, the software fads, the moments of immense discovery, and, of course, the trolls. Full of humor, humiliation, and heartbreak, Courtney’s journey to digital deactivation requires a whole lot more than the click of a mouse.
This play contains strong language that may be unsuitable for younger audiences.
