The Troll King
High school is hard. Hormones run high, bullies are cruel, and pressure from adults can take its toll. For many, the internet is a safe haven—but it can also be something more sinister. When a young gamer's love goes unrequited, he becomes radicalized by a denizen of the dark web, turning him toward patriarchy. His act of revenge rocks the student body as fantasy and reality collide and a new hero rises up to stop him. An epic play about youth, love, and obsession in the internet age.
