Welcome to JANE. Log in, submit your partner’s pictures, and indulge in your deepest fantasies. When college computer-science whizz Martin goes bankrupt, creating JANE — a virtual reality deepfake pornography experience — seems like a good way to make a quick buck. But when the prototype gets out of his hands and spins out of control, Martin finds himself in a cesspool of dangerous secrets bubbling beneath the surface of his college campus. JANE is a play about consent, desire, and the consequences of our virtual actions.
JANE is currently in development with support from the Ontario and Toronto Arts Councils, Nightwood Theatre, and Green Light Arts, and with dramaturgy by Anna Chatterton.
