DRAMA

by Jacqueline Goldfinger

CLICK follows a hacktivist named Fresh who turns industrial espionage into high art. As this virtual Banksy takes over the global imagination, the man who stole her life develops a technology that sends the two of them on a collision course at the heart of the corporate empire, where innovation comes at any cost. A cyberpunk drama for the #MeToo era, a story of trauma, transformation and reclaiming who you are.

What is my body in the Internet?

What does post-traumatic growth look like in the digital age?

Who tells your story?

Production notes:

More information and Acting Edition of CLICK will be available soon.

CAST: 3 F, 2 M (Flexible casting 5-12+)

Trigger Warning: Reference to and discussion of sexual violence on a college campus

“Riveting…Wonderful theater…Playwright Jacqueline Goldfinger is a gift to the theater community in general and to the Philly theater community in particular. Her gift transcends her awards (Yale Drama Prize and Barrymore Award among others). It is her ability to smartly examine society from a human point of view. Her new play Click is another play that can examine, raise consciousness, and entertain....Goldfinger adds a Greek chorus that helps the audience see the fallout of the main characters’ words and actions. They manage to capture both the “crowd think” and the individuality of their characters…A great thought-provoking experience. As Fresh tells us today it is all about the click, but after the click there is no sound.” -Philadelphia Life & Culture Magazine
