Right To Be Forgotten

Run Time:90 minutes, no intermission
BySharyn Rothstein
Directed byDevon de Mayo


The internet never forgets, and a young man’s mistake at 17 haunts him online a decade later. Desperate for a normal life, he goes to extraordinary lengths to erase his indiscretion. But freedom of information is a big business, and the tech companies aren’t going down without a fight. Secrets, lies, and political backstabbing abound in this riveting new drama about one man’s fierce battle to reclaim his privacy by playwright Sharyn Rothstein (By the Water, USA Network’s Suits), winner of the prestigious 2015 Primus Prize, whose work has been called “touching & affecting” (New York Times) and “a force of nature” (Time Out New York). Don’t miss this striking new play about human forgiveness in the age of the internet, heralded by New York Times technology columnist Kara Swisher as “the best dramatic depiction of the issues I write about tech and its power over our world. Wow. See it.”
