REDPILL The­atre Up­stairs, Eden Quay, Dublin 1, July 14-29 7pm (Wed & Sat 1pm) ¤12/¤10 the­atre­up­stairs.ie

In this, the age of the in­ter­net troll, it is im­por­tant to know your en­emy. The frus­trated 4chan ado­les­cents, ill at ease in the so­cial world, but en­tirely en­er­gised by the anony­mous cul­ture of misog­yny and mis­an­thropy on­line, have given the world many things that it would rather do with­out: ni­hilis­tic lulz, gamer­gate, the alt-right and the US pres­i­dent among them. In REDPILL, from Some Yanks The­atre Com­pany, writer Liam Hal­la­han per­forms his solo show about a wounded col­lege fresh­man, heart­bro­ken and be­trayed, who de­scends into the vast con­spir­acy the­o­ries and gig­gling bile of the black heart of the in­ter­net.
