Theatre, now with WhatsApp
Online extremism, anonymity and hate speech: The Believers Are But Brothers is more than your average piece of theatre. An immersive, challenging experience, where the audience becomes part of the performance via a WhatsApp group, this show effs off the fourth wall, and watches it all unwind via a webcam. Based on the book by Javid Alipoor and performed by the man himself, this production examines masculinity, politics and how technology can be used to tap into, and vent, modern feelings of resentment, rage and rejection. Fresh from winning The Scotsman’s First Fringe Award, it takes over the Hippodrome’s Patrick Studio on November 22 and 23. Tickets are £15.
