A woman’s world is turned upside down when she discovers that a hacker has invaded her online life. The mysterious presence, however, doesn’t seem interested in her money or her data but something much more elusive. Jordan asks its audience to examine how much we give away online and what we risk in our new age of information and technology. This hauntingly relevant world premiere comes to us from playwright Brenda Withers, Huntington Theater Playwriting Fellow and co-creator of the New York hit Matt & Ben.
