Chatroom

By Enda Walsh

EPUB £7.99£6.39

A chilling, blackly comic tale of manipulation, cyberbullying and adolescent insecurity.

In a quiet corner of the internet, a group of bored, restless teenagers spends its time deconstructing children's literature and the messages in modern pop music. But when a new member joins to share his depression and thoughts of suicide, the conversation takes a darker turn.

A powerful depiction of modern-day isolation and the dangerous power of technology, Enda Walsh's play Chatroom formed part of the National Theatre's 2005 Connections season, an annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools. It received its first professional production in the Cottesloe auditorium of the National Theatre, London, in March 2006.

The play is available in the volume Enda Walsh Plays: One, or individually as an ebook.
