Troll

by Ken Greller

directed by Jason Modica

Inspired by the real life case of Violentacrez, Troll tells the story of Ari Jacobs, a young web-journalist who's uncovered the scoop of a lifetime. An Internet "troll" holds sway over the online community of Reddit, filling its pages with hate, filth, and sex; moderating message boards like "Jailbait" and "Jewmerica" with impunity and seemingly unlimited power. When Ari discovers the real life identity of this troll, he's faced with the question of whether or not to expose this monster to the world. Troll, a new play by Ken Greller (Hands, Sundance Theatre Lab), explores the perils of unchecked free speech in the Internet age, where every person has the power to raise their voice. Through crackling scene-work, this vibrant and intense new work forces us to ask ouselves: "Is it okay to destroy someone else's life to save your own?"
