Join Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust for the world premiere of a new play dealing with the effects of our digital world
Join us in the West End on the 29th of October for the world premiere of Cookies - a new play written by Emily Jenkins and directed by Anna Ledwich.
Inspired by the true, heartfelt online stories of students, Cookies follows seven teenagers dealing with the effects of sexting, radicalisation, cyberbullying and our wider digital world…
Sosa is a tough, gay, streetwise Londoner who finds solace in the tunes of her favourite rap artist, but her online world comes crashing down when she finally meets her idol.
Meanwhile Eva, an aspiring vlogger, splits with Simon and is forced to deal with the devastating effects of sexting and repetitive online abuse.
Selena, infatuated with pop star Zayn, starts chatting with another faceless superfan online. As a result of their conversations the young Muslim woman begins to grapple with her faith and is persuaded to make a long journey to an unknown fate.
Written by Award-winning playwright Emily Jenkins and directed by Olivier Award nominee Anna Ledwich, Cookies takes us on an astonishing digital journey which promises to redefine how we perceive our online world.
