Anti-Social is a brand-new, full-length play by renowned playwright Don Zolidis. It is comprised of six freestanding vignettes, each one examining a different social media platform. Whether it's parents staging an Instagram intervention for their daughter; internet trolls disrupting a private conversation; or a coworker stealing a particularly clever tweet, Anti-Social will have you rolling in the aisles, while also questioning society's undeniable fixation with social media.
