Who are you? Are you the websites you visit, the music you download, the photos you post? Do you measure your value by your followers and your likes? Who’s listening to you? And whom are you watching back..?

Olivier-nominated playwright James Graham and award-winning director Josie Rourke, whose most recent collaboration THE VOTE was nominated for a BAFTA, reunite to bring this wildly inventive exploration of the digital age to the Public Theater in a co-production with London’s acclaimed Donmar Warehouse. Inspired by the revelations of Edward Snowden, and drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with the country’s top journalists, politicians and academics, Privacy explores our complicated relationship with technology and data through the funny and heartbreaking travails of one lonely guy arriving in the city to figure out how to like, tag and share his life without giving it all away.

Daniel Radcliffe (How to Succeed in Business Without Really TryingHarry Potter) uncovers what our technological choices reveal about who we are, what we want and just who’s keeping track of it all in Privacy, an astounding theatrical event unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

Charge your phone and leave it ON for this fascinating dive online and into a new reality where we’re all connected… for better or worse.

Digital technology for PRIVACY is made possible in part with support from THE ESTÉE LAUDER COMPANIES INC.
