90s rom-com cybersex

NSW
West Australian Premiere

Meg Ryan is looking for love on the internet. She finds a kind and thoughtful stranger in a chat room and instantly engages in flirty repartee. This show appears to be a rom-com—it looks and feels like a rom-com, and we know and love these endearing 90s heavyweights, right? Wrong. So very wrong.

The plot spirals, genre bends, and a camp, uncanny parody begins. Authentic human connection is impossible, Meg can’t stop thinking about cybersex, and Tom’s getting more and more crazed. Reality gets left in the dust.

Part performance art, part theatre, You’ve Got Mail is a tight hour of laughs, so-bad-they’re-good Hollywood tropes, and cyberfeminism. Whether you love, hate, or know nothing about its namesake, jump off the chatroom, grab some popcorn, and witness a wild homage to all things AOL.

As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.
