An electrifying drama about what happens to personal identity in an age of ubiquitous technology and social media.
John is a twenty-seven-year-old teacher ‘who probably wasn’t allowed to teach at an all-girls’ school’ and Mark is his sixteen-year-old ‘Olympic porn-watching’ pupil. A normal week in their normal lives – school, eat, TV, sleep, repeat.
Except in an age of twisted technology and unfettered profiles, the life Mark really wants is only a click away… but what happens when that life already belongs to John? By Friday, the shit really is going to hit the fan.
Two interlinking monologues, WINK examines two lives veering dangerously close to collision, asking us what separates the man from the boy.
WINK, Phoebe Eclair-Powell’s debut play, was first produced by Tara Finney Productions and Theatre503, and premiered at Theatre503, London, in March 2015.
