Do Not Feed the Trolls
The Krumple Theatre Company
Through the guise of a straightforward book-tour, the Krumple takes the audience on a nightmare journey inside the world of internet trolling. Inspired by true stories of online harassment, Norwegian folkloric trolls, and the company’s own particular brand of lunacy, Do Not Feed the Trolls tells the story of Lisa Holloway, an ordinary girl who ventured onto the internet.
Isolated and bored, 14-year old Lisa discovers the cyber reality of social media. She quickly becomes an accidental celebrity in this world, but, just as quickly, finds herself terrorized by a legion of idiotic, wig-wearing trolls. Unstoppable, the trolls seem determined to destroy her self-confidence, her reputation, and threaten her very existence…
Do Not Feed the Trolls questions how anonymity affects our online behaviour online, and what makes us capable of harassing others. Who are these so-called trolls, and what do they want?
