In this world premiere play, Lottie has always been that all-star student who’s everyone best friend. Fresh out of college, she’s determined to change the world and make a difference. But when she dies at her internship in Afghanistan, the internet threatens to tear memory apart. As fangirls, rubberneckers, pseudo-friends, trolls and her own social media fuel the digital storm, Lottie's friends will struggle over how and who gets to tell her story, and what her legacy should be.
#yourmemorial is a play about what we choose to remember, what we refuse to see, and what it means to be real in the Facebook age. First developed at Middle Voice at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, #yourmemorial is written by Emily Daly, directed by Emily Lyon, and features Sasha Lazare, Esmeralda Garza, Meredith Starkman, and John Dewey*.
