F. Off


National Youth Theatre present


By Tatty Hennessy 
Directed by Paul Roseby 
Associate Director Megan Doyle 

12.50 - 14.05, 2-25 August
Belly Button, Cowgate 

As the extremes of social media kick up an unsettling and unsavoury stink, we are kicking off in response in true interrogatory style to put Mark Zuckerberg and his social media colleagues ‘on trial.’ Written by Evening Standard ‘one-to-watch’ Tatty Hennessy and wittily directed with by NYT Artistic Director Paul Roseby. 

With the growth in surveillance capitalism and data swaps to make any liberal blush, the question on our lips will be who really is to blame and who is following who?

So we ask you, the audience to be the jury and the National Youth Theatre company will be the disrupters. All done with a heavy helping of humour, some knitting and hard-core experts.

F. Off was developed as a workshop production in 2018 with 30 members of the National Youth Theatre from across the UK. Watch them talk about the experience on Channel 4 News here
