Impending Everyone (ages 14-17)

IMPENDING EVERYONE

by Michael Andrew Collins

ABOUT THE PLAY

Someone at school has gained access to everyone’s internet history, messages, and metadata. All the things everyone’s looked up and said. They plan to release them. But the students can’t let this happen. They have secrets that can’t come out, and less than one day to stop their release.

Impending Everyone explores what happens when we have to own up to the things we’ve said, when anonymity is stripped away and our desires are laid bare. It is a timely work amid the rise of technology and the erosion of our rights to privacy. The play provokes questions around identity: who we are, how we are perceived by our peers, and the impacts the internet and social media are having on our lives.
