Right to Be Forgotten May 29 - Jun 28, 2020  
Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph Right to Be Forgotten
 
The internet never forgets and 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.

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.
