By Kathy Rucker
Performed at the Park Theatre, London – August 2014
What do you do when your child is bullied? Talk to the school, the parents, the bullies? What do you do if there are hundreds of tormentors invading your home through your computer? What if one of the instigators is a parent?
Inspired by true events, this new work by award winning playwright Kathy Rucker follows a suburban mother who is obsessed by her daughter’s online social circle and inadvertently sets into motion a scheme with a horrifying outcome.
Crystal Springs is a gripping drama about cyber-bullying and the challenges of parenting in the digital age.
