The story would ap­peal to any­one who had used so­cial me­dia or was a gamer, she said.

It would be of in­ter­est to ‘‘any­one who has an opin­ion on the in­ter­net age’’.

The story fo­cused on a young man called Dan who de­cided to delete his Face­book pro­file, Hen­der­son said.

‘‘[He] finds him­self sud­denly drawn into the depths of the in­ter­net.’’

Dan is forced to come face to face with old pro­files rep­re­sent­ing who he used to be.

‘‘It re­ally talks about re­la­tion­ships ... life and death in the in­ter­net. It speaks to the fact that he missed con­nec­tions.’’

A cast of eight peo­ple, mostly aged around 17, had been work­ing on the show for about six weeks.

Sec­ond After­life will run at the Ai­dan The­atre, 28 Lat­ter St, Ti­maru, from 7pm on Thurs­day, Fri­day and Satur­day, with a mati­nee at 2pm on Sun­day. Tick­ets $20 adults, students and se­niors $15, from New­mans Mu­sicWorks on Stafford St.

The show is R13, and con­tains a warn­ing that some con­tent may of­fend.

For fur­ther de­tails con­tact Kim­ble Hen­der­son on 036866634.
