we broke up.
Everyone’s favorite vlogging couple just broke up, and they’re here–streaming live–to tell you all about it. In a climate of social distancing, this play, created for digital performance, explores the world of social-media celebrities and challenges our addictive consumption of the private lives of strangers, revealing that the distance between genuine vulnerability and performative pain is far greater than the inches between one’s face and their computer screen.
