Curious about sex, 16 year-old Pandora uses her iPhone to privately gather information. To her surprise, an innocent search turns into a disturbing journey through the surreal realm of cyber-porn. Conflicted about what she sees, Pandora realizes the dangers of defining oneself through the prism of the internet, and the importance of remaining plugged into the real world.

One of Youtheatre’s most successful plays for grades 9-11, exploring themes of self-esteem, identity, and digital awareness, updated for 2020
