A radically inclusive theatre piece about a world where facebook likes and systematic racism receive equal attention.

Lamplighter Productions announces the tour of their premiere production How to be a GoodPerson TM an ensemble-devised multi-media exploration of communication in the digital age.

How to be a GoodPerson TM tells the story of Vanessa and Paul, two people searching for meaning in an environment of overwhelming stimulation. Social media is flooded with headlines that read “Bring Back Our Girls” but also “36 Ingenious Ways to Eat Peanut Butter for Breakfast”. Online users present themselves via curated snippets of themselves through Facebook and Snapchat which can capture genuine human moments but can also represent us as more successful or more superficial than they truly are. This piece explores how it is possible to differentiate the genuine from the artificial when there is so much noise.

All shows are FREE. Reserve tickets here.
