Meg Ryan is looking for love on the internet. She finds a kind and thoughtful stranger in a chat room and instantly engages in flirty repartee. This show appears to be a romcom—it looks and feels like a romcom, and Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are both charismatic and endearing rom-com heavyweights, right? Wrong.
The plot spirals, genre bends, and a camp, uncanny parody begins. Can authentic human emotion prevail in the age of the internet? Or are we too invested in cyberspace? And is that a good or a bad thing?
Part performance art, part theatre, You’ve Got Mail is a tight hour of laughs, so-bad-they’re-good Hollywood tropes, and cyberfeminism. Whether you love, hate, or know nothing about the movie it’s satirising, You’ve Got Mail is a weird and wild heck of a ride.
Presented by Sotto.
