James Graham brings forensic wit and insight to this dramatic investigation of the digital age.
Privacy explores how governments and corporations collect and use our personal information, and what that means for our security, our identity and our future. Provoked by the recent revelations of Edward Snowden, the play draws on interviews with journalists, politicians and analysts, and asks the audience directly: how much do we give away when we share?
Through his personal journey, Graham gets at the play’s real purpose: to animate the post-Snowden world in such a way as to make us, the audience, feel that not only are our intellectual but our emotional liberties at risk.Emma Brockes
The piece is a fresh and engaging mélange of verbatim interview text, geektastic research and romantic comedy
