Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography

$23.99

They met online. She’s a nurse in her forties, brats for kids, trapped in a loop of catastrophic debt. He’s in IT, miserably married and trapped in his own loop of nightly porn-trawling. Both of them crave something else – but not necessarily each other.

Take the plunge into the Too-Much-Information Age. Funny and fiercely written, Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography is a deceptively compassionate cringe-comedy of mid-life loneliness, hidden zip folders and barely concealed desperation.

"Greene insists the play is not repulsive at all. ''I think it is very, very human. Both characters are looking to escape their lives and they do that through their online dating profiles,'' he says. ''Their first date goes pretty disastrously and then it goes from bad to worse for another hour or so. I like to think of it as a comedy.''"

REVIEW: EIGHT GIGABYTES OF HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHY

BEN NIELSEN, LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE, 24 MAY 2014

"The text humanises the emotions, insecurities, hurt and rejection harboured by online social media. It’s both surprising and gratifying that a young writer can share his perspective and explore this material with such depth, decisiveness, and effect."
