English Translation of an Award Winning German Play comes to Washington.

And Now The World

The English language premiere of an award-winning German play, that questions the effects of the internet on our behavior, comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 12 November at 7.30pm.

The internet is a world of possibilities, but what happens to us when we get information overload?   And Now: The World! uncovers the harsh anonymity of a life lived online; and asks are human relationships sacrificed in return for a digital existence?  What does social media do to our minds?

Winner of the Theater Heute’s German Play of the Year Award, this solo performance examines what it means to be a young woman in a digital world. Written by Award-winning German playwright Sybille Berg, who was nominated for the most prestigious award for German speaking playwrights, the Mulheim Dramatists’ Award as well as winner of the 2008 Wolfgang-Koeppen-Literaturpreis, the performance dissects a human response to an online world of possibilities.

The play is presented by OpenWorks who are dedicated to creating theatre for new and young audiences.

OpenWorks’ Artistic Director, Abigail Graham said, “I’m thrilled that we are bringing this amazing award-winning German text to the UK. It's an important, thought-provoking play that tackles the most urgent issues of our times - digital culture, activism, feminism, human relationships. Sybille Berg is one of the best playwrights I have come across and I can't wait to share her work with British audiences.”

And Now: The World comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 12 November at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £6 and are available from Arts Centre Washington or by calling 0191 219 3455.
