Miller Performing Arts presents #hashtag
Time Out says
Featuring some of Hong Kong’s most talented young actors (aged 12 to 25), the original theatre production #hashtag will be arriving on the Hong Kong stage this November. Written and directed by Lindsey McAlister, founder of the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF), #hashtag provides a deeper insight into the tool that dominates our modern world – social media.
The plot follows five teenagers, each with a distinct personality and a reliance on technology, communicating through an online chatroom. A significant portion of the dialogue includes emojis, memes, and hashtags – forms of communication that are extremely prevalent with social media users today. The teenagers laugh and click their way through the chatroom, but soon realise that there is a much deeper level of meaning underneath the surface of their conversations.
