The anonymous online world gives us permission to say and do things we would never do in real life. But where do we draw the line between fun and maliciousness? The harsh realities of cyber bullying and what happens when we’re discovered come to a head in tagged. As an Officer investigates Jerri and Webber, two young adults, in the incessant online harassment of a fellow student, not all is as it appears to be. Do these teens actually understand the consequences of their actions? Or have they even caught the right people? How responsible are we for the words that we type and what they lead others to do? Torn from the headlines, tagged dissects the dangerous potential for harm that exists between social media and young minds.
Commissioned and originally produced by Green Thumb Theatre

“Deveau smartly avoids lecturing and instead focuses on different aspects of the medium to deliver the message… this play is an excellent one to watch because of how accurate and honest it is. It doesn’t matter if you were on the giving or receiving end of bullying – you’ll see shades of yourself in any or all of the characters. Deveau’s play is just the right length to pack a mighty wallop.” – The Examiner (5 stars out of 5)
“Any preaching would turn off teens’ attention. Deveau’s clever solution is to write the play in the form of a mystery… Deveau leaves us with questions and thus with much for us to discuss.” – Christopher Hoile, Stage Door (4 stars out of 5)
