Assault With A Deadly Weapon
Jermyn Street Theatre
As part of the 'Footprints Festival'
2nd June 2021
"It's all about information.
You can have a picture of someone and the information/ the data/ and you already know what they’d say, enough to have lost conversations when they’re as far away as another human being can be."
Assault With A Deadly Weapon is a short play that explores issues of data privacy and isolation; in a time where technology should bring us closer together. In this digital space we meet Bella, a hotline operator; her manager Marcus; and her naive but strong-willed customer Danni.
Assault With A Deadly Weapon premiered with Opsis Theatre Company on YouTube on the 20th February, 2021 as a digital theatre production.
The live theatre debut of Assault With A Deadly Weapon took place on the 2nd June at Jermyn Street Theatre as part of the work-in-progress evening, 'Push & Pull', for their Footprints Festival. A live recording of this can be provided upon request.
