Would you watch the worst things on the internet for a living? This multi-award-winning play follows two former social media moderators on a mission to sue the company that exposed them to the darkest corners of the web. Rooted in real accounts, Moderation takes a darkly comedic look at the hidden human toll of moderating the platforms we rely on. “A play to get lost in” (The Scotsman). “Beautifully poignant” (The Edinburgh Reporter).
Winner of the CUADC Playwriting Award and the Cambridge Creatives Award, this gripping play is a must see for anyone who has ever wondered about the price we pay for a safer online experience.
Moderation will make its London debut after a sell-out extended run at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe.
