CHATROOM by Enda Walsh

UpStaged Theatre Company returned to Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate as part of the Camden Fringe Festival 2019 with 'CHATROOM'

In a virtual space of an internet chatroom, a group of bored and restless teenagers spend their time deconstructing anything from children’s literature, to the mixed messages in modern pop music and even… suicide.

When a new member joins to share his thoughts and depression the conversation takes a dark turn. The group is torn between those who want to help and those who see this as a chance to create a martyr for the teenage population.

Upstage Theatre Company’s ‘Chatroom’ explodes the myth of the teenage mind and skilfully shoves you into their world and innovatively opens up the world of the online ‘chatroom’ 

This is a brave, insight to teenage life right now – and the buttons people press to really push you over the edge. Recommended viewing for all parents – and their kids.

UpStaged Theatre Company revives the chilling tale of cyberbullying and manipulation as part of this year's Camden Fringe. The young company is directed by Nick Hooton, who delivers the text with distinct sensitivity and simmering stillness...

The performers are able to land the show and demonstrate exceedingly well how little it takes for hate to spread on the internet and how viciously callous attacks can escalate out of control...

All in all Chatroom, as presented by Hooton, remains poignant in the paramount debate over online abuse and bullying.
