Hey, cool profile, I also like camping and DIY. I’d love to buy you a drink. If someone attacked you, what would you do? Feeling Lonely? Lacking Intimacy? Click Here Now! It’s more Sisyphus for the GIF Age.

With Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography, Declan Greene takes us
to the lo-res heart of modern love, static included. Feeling Lonely? Lacking
Intimacy? Click Here Now! It’s more Sisyphus for the GIF Age.

Greene is one of his generation’s sharpest and most eccentric playwrights,
and has been awarded the Malcolm Robertson Prize (2010), the R.E. Ross
Trust Playwright’s Development Awards (2007 and 2009), and the Green
Room Award for Best Original Writing (2010).  Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore
Pornography won Greene the 2012 Max Afford Playwrights’ Award.

“Brilliant…Clinical” the Age
“Extraordinary” Herald Sun
“disarmingly imaginative… superbly acted” The Australian;

She turns to me with glowing eyes and asks, ‘you do know that we are dead, don’t you?’
I said I knew and asked if it were possible to die even more. Vampires eat couscous and drink soy lattes too.
