Taffety Punk shines an important light into dark territory in this original dance play, with the goal of inspiring understanding and compassion. The six characters navigate their way to a safe Internet space to share their own dark impulses. We know them only by their user names. The audience follows one character, lostbooks, a relative newcomer to the group, as she responds to her fellow users' extreme highs and lows, their desires, and their confessions. Her fellow users reveal more and more about themselves — although one keeps the secret that she is posting as two people — until they come to a final dire and impulsive goal. In a critical moment, lostbooks delivers a soliloquy that brings all of her strength and weakness to the fore.
