We live in a time where old orders are collapsing. From the post colonial nation states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. Through it all, tech savvy and bloodthirsty groups like ISIS run through European drawn border lines. 

Amidst this, a generation of young men, find themselves burning with resentment; without the money, power and sex they think they deserve and this crisis of masculinity leads them on a journey into an online world of fantasy, violence and reality. Written by Manchester based Javaad Alipoor, this Fringe First award-winning and Total Theatre Nominated (Experimentation & Innovation) multi-media show weaves together their stories. One of the word of mouth hits of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, this is a play both in and of our times.
