Overview

"Tim Price's play about two hackers is tumultuous, energetic and ultimately touching in its vision of a global network of young people dedicated to challenging the status quo.” Guardian

A sixteen-year-old London schoolboy and an eighteen-year-old recluse in Shetland meet online, pick a fight with the FBI and change the world forever. This brave and challenging play gets behind the code with the original Anonymous members, offering an anarchic retelling of the birth of hacktivism.

Teh Internet is Serious Business is a fictional account of the true story of Anonymous and LulzSec, the collective swarm who took on the most powerful capitalist forces from their bedrooms.

The play received its world premiere at the Royal Court, London, in September 2014.

This new Modern Classics edition features an introduction by Hamish Pirie.
