[Rothstein’s] work has been called “a force of nature.”
Written by Sharyn Rothstein
Directed by Seema Sueko
The Internet never forgets. 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 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 right to privacy. Playwright Sharyn Rothstein (By the Water, USA Network’s "Suits"), winner of the prestigious 2015 Primus Prize and whose work has been called “touching & affecting” (New York Times), has written a striking allegory about privacy, social media and human forgiveness in the age of the internet.
Right to be Forgotten is generously sponsored by Joan and David Maxwell, Christopher Wolf and James Beller and is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
Right to be Forgotten runs approximately one hour and 35 minutes with no intermission.
