Two internet celebrities spend the night in an abandonded cabin. You won’t believe what happens next.
Beckah and BryBry are self-obsessed internet celebrities who take on crazy challenges for their YouTube channel. When the challenge is to survive one night in a deserted cabin, it is their own duality that is the biggest threat. Along with their Producer, Owen, and their new cameraperson, Sam, who both have their own dreams of fame and their own agenda, the game becomes deadly real, or real deadly, either way.
Local writer Tonya Narvaez’s (SF Neo-Futurists) one-act play takes a dark and satirical look at influencer culture and the difference between who we are online and who we are IRL. Directed by acclaimed Bay Area artist, Claire Rice (Let’s Kill Jessica), CLICKBAIT blends video and live-action to create a dark, modern and stylized story about what we do for fame.

Production Staff: Claire Rice, Kerri Blake Cavanaugh, Colin Johnson, Dani Spinks, Sara “Edie” Saavedra, Alexandra Danylyszyn, Puja Tolton, Tunuviel Luv, Tanya Acosta, Tonya Narvaez, Anthony R. Miller, Jess Thomas, and Stephanie Whigham
