Booking to 25 March 2023
From award-winning writer Joseph Charlton (ANNA X, Industry), comes Brilliant Jerks at the Southwark Playhouse.
This fast-paced, touching and scandal-driven show is based on the creation of a multi-billion-dollar taxi app.
This is the story of one brilliant idea. And the impact on the lives of many.
Brilliant Jerks is playing at the Southwark Playhouse Borough from 1 to 25 March 2023.
What's the story of Brilliant Jerks?
Tap a button. Get a ride.
In 2008, an entrepreneur leaves a tech conference in Paris. As he stands on the street, unable to hail a cab, an idea lands with the falling snow: tap a button, get a ride. Ten years later, Mia drives nights in Manchester, Sean is recruited as the brightest new programmer and Tyler moves onto yet another new future. This is the story of one brilliant idea, and the impact on the lives of many.
This mesmerising play follows the chain reaction of change, during a decade of fast-growing and unregulated technology, which has so profoundly affected our everyday lives.
