Crystal Springs by Kathy Rucker
Epsilon return to Park Theatre, following the success of their 5-star production Skin Tight for a summer season with Crystal Springs, followed by Chicken Shop.
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.
"...an acutely intelligent play about cyberbullying... highly recommended."

"The acting of the all-female cast is of a very high standard and excellent in places."

"An all-female tour-de-force that hits with hurricane-like impact from the opening scene...
the only thing ‘Crystal Springs’ needs now is a longer run."
