Lent Week 6
A Friend's Request is a cruel and bitter misanthropic comedy about the lives of three lonely people in the age of social networks.
Tal has only four Facebook friends. Jake has a few hundred Facebook friends, but in reality he mostly socializes with Tal. He is in love with the influencer and former reality TV star @Big_Bum and wooing her. After a very embarrassing incident turns him into an internet celebrity, they end up together, and their wedding breaks the internet. The deserted Tal, who feels left out, decides to give the newlyweds his services as a social media manager as a wedding present. The envy, grudge, and greed over the potential number of likes each one of the three might gain will quickly shake up the new family, and lead to horrible acts of vengeance.
This play is a tribute to the works of Hanoch Levin, and dedicated in his memory.
