Director's Notes

“It's hard to believe that Clickshare was written in 2014, 2 years before the terms ‘fake news’ or ‘alternative facts’ would even begin to enter the public discourse. Even so, this remarkably clever, acerbic, and –above all else– prescient comedy asks questions that resonate profoundly in the here and now. Where is the line between truth, exaggeration, and lies? What are the effects of unlimited information on the human mind? Is there ever a time where telling the truth is less worthwhile than telling the right story? Clickshare explores these themes with the intensity of a psychological thriller and the broad, satirical wit of a cult dark comedy. I'm not sure whether people will walk away from the play laughing or horrified, but either way, it will have done its job beautifully.”

—Madison Gordon, director
