Welcome to JANE. Log in, submit your partner’s pictures, and indulge in your deepest fantasies. When college computer-science whizz Martin goes bankrupt, creating JANE — a virtual reality deepfake pornography experience — seems like a good way to make a quick buck. But when the prototype gets out of his hands and spins out of control, Martin finds himself in a cesspool of dangerous secrets bubbling beneath the surface of his college campus. JANE is a play about consent, desire, and the consequences of our virtual actions.
“JANE is a timely project helmed by two intriguing emerging theatre artists of note: Camille Intson and Bryn Kennedy. As the piece’s playwright, Camille draws on complex themes of love & belonging, identity, sex, consent and technology through the lives of her young adult characters. As the piece’s director, Bryn shows a sharp understanding of intimacy, space and pace.”Andrea Donaldson, Artistic Director of Nightwood Theatre
