Faceless follows the unexpected twists and turns of Susie, a suburban Chicago teenager who lives her life on the internet.
In Faceless, Susie messages her “faceless” friend “I think I’m ready to convert- I know I need two witnesses for it to count so I Googled it” leading her on a path of unexpected consequences……….
Faceless is important to raise awareness of the power of the internet and how virtual friends can be persuasive to vulnerable young people leading them into courses of action that can be detrimental to their well being.
The play would highlight these problems in order to promote debate and to help parents and young people to understand the complexities of the internet.
The play is relevant in the UK as the internet has no boundaries.
Index on Censorship CEO Jodie Ginsberg will lead a post-show discussion about the issues Faceless raises in the context of freedom of expression. The discussion will take place in the theatre directly after the show and no additional ticket is required.
