Background


Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre in July, the Almeida Young Company returns to present Cacophony at the Yard Theatre in February 2019.


Inspired by the ideas in Jon Ronson's book, So You've Been Publicly Shamed.


This show contains flashing lights and haze effects.


Synopsis


“When public shamings are delivered like remotely administered drone strikes nobody need think about how ferocious our collective power might be.


The snowflake never needs to feel responsible for the avalanche.”


Created by the Almeida Young Company (18-25) and written by Molly Taylor, Cacophony tells the story of a young woman's rise to fame after speaking up at a protest outside a controversial rape trial.


Weaving a complex web of fame and shame, Cacophony explores the power social media has to liberate brave new voices and, just as quickly, bring them crashing to earth.
