I am a teacher and my initial plan was to do some of this this with my students (all around 17 years old) but none of them knew what a chat room was. The performances take place ‘as part of the school day’, during a designated extra curricular activity time. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Undoubtedly, one of my favourite modern plays, Chatroom comments on the all too tangible reality of cyberspace bullying in a visceral, scary and yet somehow humourous way. A great play nonetheless which is difficult to actually enjoy because of the nature of it, but Enda highlights the dangers of conformity and what can happen if a joke is taken too far.A very thought provoking play, although I think I am going to have to either read the ending again or watch a staged version of it to fully understand. From purely reading it, the ending felt a little flat but I can imagine it being a much more powerful thing to witness than to read. William Collins is a depressed teenage boy recovering from self-harm and regularly goes online to chatrooms.

When William gets it and comes back, Eva punches him and the rest of the crew comes, followed by the police. A group of keyboard warriors- nameless, faceless and masked by a computer screen find comfort in antagonist William.They devise ways in which Emily could be more violent and make it look like somebody is harassing her family, which makes her parents try to protect her more. In a quiet corner of the internet, a group of bored, restless teenagers spends its time deconstructing children's literature and the messages in modern pop music. It was good but I will have to say that I liked the movie better which I never say, but it would be interesting to see a performance of this. A very important message which is current and will be relevant for the duration of this technology-driven age. Whether that's putting new work on stages across the world or supporting our outreach and learning programmes, every purchase you make really does make a difference.

Chatroom is a 2010 British psychological thriller drama film directed by Hideo Nakata [3] from a screenplay by Enda Walsh, based on Walsh's 2005 play of the same name. The group is torn between those who want to help and those who see this as a chance to create a martyr for the teenage population.Jim is another loner who is suffering from depression following his father leaving him and his mother.

Chatroom was originally performed as part of the 2005 NT Connections season, produced by Boomerang Theatre Company, Cork and directed by Donal Gallagher. All of the characters have their own insecurities, their own ‘issues’ and they use an internet chat room to blow off some steam and express their thoughts of the world. But when a new member joins to share his depression and thoughts of suicide, the conversation takes a darker turn. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Mo believes himself to be a pedophile because he is attracted to his friend Si's prepubescent sister, Keisha.He convinces Jim to flush down his antidepressants to make himself feel more relaxed and to reveal his face behind the depressants, his true identity. Even though they only really communicate through text, they are depicted in an old hotel-like room and actually having contact. Conversations range in subject from Britney Spears to Willy Wonka to — suicide: Jim is depressed and talks of ending his life and Eva and William decide to do their utmost to persuade him to carry out his threat. A powerful depiction of modern-day isolation and the dangerous power of technology, Enda Walsh's play Chatroom formed part of the National Theatre's 2005 Connections season, an annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools.
