Project Y’s 2014 reading series focuses on plays about science, technology, and human connection. This month’s play focuses on social media, internet, YouTube, and teenagers – all proving to be quite a volatile and entertaining mix.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
Sexy videos that go viral! Hilarious internet hookups! Gaming gone wild! But in a world where we constantly connect with one another through a keyboard, why do so many of us still feel so alone?
