Intimacy is dead, and we’re partying with its corpse.
Intoxication is a post-dramatic patchwork that explores how the intense fear of being alone rules modern society, and how one person’s loneliness is symptomatic of everyone’s problem. It’s a play about the ways in which technological anxiety have seeped so far into the everyday that it now seems strange to not be anxious – a play about a world where questions like “am I being weird if I text this person twice?” and “you liked my profile picture from 2012 – what does that mean?” are the norm, and overthinking reigns supreme.
