About the show

This world premiere from Pigeonholed Theater is a play about what we choose to remember, what we refuse to see, and what it means to be real in the Facebook age.  More…

Lottie has always been that all-star student who’s everyone best friend. Fresh out of college, she’s determined to change the world and make a difference. But when she dies at her internship in Afghanistan, the internet threatens to tear memory apart. As fangirls, rubberneckers, pseudo-friends, trolls, and her own social media fuel the digital storm, Lottie's friends will struggle over how and who gets to tell her story, and what her legacy should be.
