“Sadly, I can’t see this but if I was in London at the start of this week I would because it sounds great. Inspired by Jon Ron’s terrific book ‘So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed’, Molly Taylor’s play, devised with members of the Almeida Young Company, tells of a young woman who becomes an internet sensation after speaking up outside a controversial rape trial. Dumbshow’s Michael Bryher directs.”
“When public shamings are delivered like remotely administered drone strikes nobody need think about how ferocious our collective power might be. The snowflake never needs to feel responsible for the avalanche.”
Weaving a complex web of fame and shame, Cacophony explores the power social media has to liberate brave new voices and, just as quickly, bring them crashing to earth. Inspired by the ideas in Jon Ronson’s book, So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.
