#TotalKnockOut

Pink Pluto Collective with support from Pandemic Theatre and Theatre Passe Muraille

Tom is hell-bent on using his youtube channel to take down homophobes. Ryder founded a site for jilted exes to post “revenge porn” – sexually explicit photos and videos with links to real names. Kayla’s church kicked her out after she got posted to the site.  Seb is a veteran turned anti-war activist who got outed online as HIV positive and has an army of trolls after him. Reverend Mary is fed up with the “real world” and is starting a new life in BetterWorld. The omnipresent Netty (the internet) is jugging all of this – plus she’s got her own stuff to deal with. Ryder, inspired by the real-life Hunter Moore who was described as “the most hated man on the Internet”, is clearly morally bankrupt but what of the others who have each lashed out and hurt other people online? #TotalKnockOut investigates justice in an internet era.
