Euripides’ genre-defying classic has been hacked, warped and chopped – rebooted for the electronic age. Orestes, “the poet laureate of the internet!” is blurred and bleeding across YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and Tiktok. His unimaginable crime of matricide is stuck on autoplay. De-platformed, disconnected, stranded in the silence of the real, he must claw his way back online and survive there by any means necessary.

Rick Roberts has been both a stage and screen actor for nearly three decades. As a writer, Rick's work, Mimi: A Poisoner's Comedy which he co-wrote with Allan Cole and Melody Johnson premiered at Tarragon in Sept 2009 and was nominated for a Dora Award.

All ticket holders will receive an email on the day of their chosen performance with instuctions on how to access to play.
