The independent theatre company Ego Actus presents a remount of their 2013 best-selling cautionary tale in which a prep school girl discovers that this week's Internet sensation is a video of her having sex. More…
Vicky Walker finds herself in the center of an enormous firestorm after a sex video featuring her and her boyfriend, Roger, hits the Internet. Vicky was drunk and possibly drugged when the video was made, and she certainly did not give permission to her boyfriend's buddy Oliver to tape it. For Oliver it's a goof: a chance to get back at Roger for a prank and a play for Vicky, on whom he has long had a crush. But for Vicky, it's devastating. Her feminist mother wants to help, but Vicky insists she can handle the crisis alone. Can Vicky free herself from the Internet, or will she always be caught in its web?
