From this chilling premise is forged a funny, compelling and uplifting play that tackles the issues of teenage life head-on and with great understanding. Disclaimer/Trigger warning: This production contains adult themes and language from the very start, as well as references to suicide, depression and family trauma. Conversations range in subject from Britney Spears to Willy Wonka to — suicide: Jim is depressed and talks of ending his life and Eva and William decide to do their utmost to persuade him to carry out his threat.but it also contains loads of excellent monologues, duologues and short scenes for classwork or exams.

A powerful depiction of modern-day isolation and the dangerous power of technology, Enda Walsh's play Chatroom formed part of the National Theatre's 2005 Connections season, an annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools. Whether that's putting new work on stages across the world or supporting our outreach and learning programmes, every purchase you make really does make a difference. His plans are halted though when his computer and phone are taken away from him by his father, who when looking through William's computer, finds one of the suicide videos.

I've been wanting to read this for such a long time, well since I saw the movie and it finally came in the library today.
