production information

“When public shamings are delivered like remotely administered drone strikes nobody need think about how ferocious our collective power might be. The snowflake never needs to feel responsible for the avalanche." 
Jon Ronson

After a successful, sold-out run at the Almeida in July, Cacophony transfers to the Yard Theatre for a limited run of four performances.

Created by the Almeida Young Company and written by Molly Taylor, Cacophony tells the story of a young woman’s rise to fame after speaking up at a protest outside a controversial rape trial.

Weaving a complex web of fame and shame, Cacophony explores the power social media has to liberate brave new voices and, just as quickly, bring them crashing to earth. Inspired by the ideas in Jon Ronson’s book, So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.
