About this deal

COVID 19: This production has been produced in line with current government guidelines regarding COVID 19. Undoubtedly, one of my favourite modern plays, Chatroom comments on the all too tangible reality of cyberspace bullying in a visceral, scary and yet somehow humourous way. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. I am a teacher and my initial plan was to do some of this this with my students (all around 17 years old) but none of them knew what a chat room was.

Mo and the others discover about William's intended actions and go to stop him, meeting up in person and trying to follow William and Jim around London. A very thought provoking play, although I think I am going to have to either read the ending again or watch a staged version of it to fully understand. but it also contains loads of excellent monologues, duologues and short scenes for classwork or exams. Chatroom was originally performed as part of the 2005 NT Connections season, produced by Boomerang Theatre Company, Cork and directed by Donal Gallagher. 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.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It received its first professional production in the Cottesloe auditorium of the National Theatre, London, in March 2006. When William gets it and comes back, Eva punches him and the rest of the crew comes, followed by the police. His plans are halted though when his computer and phone are taken away from him by his father, who when looking through William's computer, finds one of the suicide videos.

A great play nonetheless which is difficult to actually enjoy because of the nature of it, but Enda highlights the dangers of conformity and what can happen if a joke is taken too far. But when a new member joins to share his depression and thoughts of suicide, the conversation takes a darker turn. All of the characters have their own insecurities, their own ‘issues’ and they use an internet chat room to blow off some steam and express their thoughts of the world. 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. Chatroom is a 2010 British psychological thriller drama film directed by Hideo Nakata [3] from a screenplay by Enda Walsh, based on Walsh's 2005 play of the same name.Principal photography took place in early 2010 at Shepperton Studios in Shepperton, Surrey, [5] with some outdoor scenes shot in Camden and Primrose Hill. From purely reading it, the ending felt a little flat but I can imagine it being a much more powerful thing to witness than to read. A group of bored and restless teenagers - William, Jack, Eva, Emily and Laura - spend their time deconstructing children's literature and the messages in modern pop music. Conversations range in subject from Britney Spears to Willy Wonka to - suicide: Jim is depressed and talks of ending his life and Eva and William decide to do their utmost to persuade him to carry out his threat. They devise ways in which Emily could be more violent and make it look like somebody is harassing her family, which makes her parents try to protect her more.

Regardless I think there is some really deep and interesting subject matter in this play and I am looking forward to re-reading as I use it for a school project.

The performances take place ‘as part of the school day’, during a designated extra curricular activity time. It was good but I will have to say that I liked the movie better which I never say, but it would be interesting to see a performance of this.

I think some of the characters are a little too 1D and appear as devices for the story's advancement, however 1D characters aren't uncommon on the internet so I can let it slide.
