October 23: Free Tickets to Right To Be Forgotten @ Arena Stage
October 10, 2019
All Georgetown students, faculty, and staff are welcome to Georgetown Night at Arena Stage to see the world premiere of:
Right to Be Forgotten
Wednesday October 23
7:30 p.m. show at Arena Stage
The Internet never forgets. A young man’s mistake at 17 haunts him online a decade later. Desperate for a normal life, he goes to extraordinary lengths to erase his indiscretion. But freedom of information is big business, and the tech companies aren’t going down without a fight. Secrets, lies and political backstabbing abound in this riveting new drama about one man’s fierce battle to reclaim his right to privacy. Playwright Sharyn Rothstein (By The Water, USA Network’s Suits), winner of the prestigious 2015 Primus Prize and whose work has been called “touching & affecting” (New York Times), has written a striking allegory about privacy, social media and human forgiveness in the age of the internet. Directed by Arena’s Deputy Artistic Director, Seema Sueko.
REGISTER HERE for a FREE ticket, transportation between Main Campus and Arena Stage, and a post-show reception. The bus will leave Main Campus at 6:30 p.m., and attendees are also welcome to meet at Arena Stage. Questions or want to bring a group?
