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 is 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.

Joseph Charlton’s Brilliant Jerks comes to Southwark Playhouse
New play Brilliant Jerks is coming to Southwark Playhouse Borough this Spring 2023. The play will run at Southwark Playhouse Borough from 1 to 25 March 2023. Written by Joseph Charlton (BBC's Industry, ANNA X), Brilliant Jerks was originally performed at the VAULT Festival in 2018, and now returns to London as a full-length production. The show promises to be a fast, touching and scandal-driven play based on the creation of a multi-billion-dollar cab hailing app: the story of one brilliant idea, and the impact on the lives of many, charting the chain reaction of change, during a decade of fast-growing and unregulated technology, which has so profoundly affected our everyday lives. Writer Joseph Charlton said in a press statement: "Brilliant Jerks began life a few years ago when I was working as a journalist. I was interviewing drivers and office workers for Uber in London for an article and got fascinated by their stories. The play is about the beginning of the end of the tech boom era. There was a time only a little while back where "Uber" was almost a state of mind more than just a company: all of us wanted more, bigger, better, now. More convenience, more value, more lifestyle. I think we have a more complicated relationship now with the big tech companies than during their heyday five or ten years ago, but we still live with them in our pockets. This play is about the people behind the tech. It's about a driver, a coder, and a CEO - and what unites or divides those people all working for one company, but living very disparate lives." Casting and further creative team will be announced soon. Southwark Playhouse also announced this week that their new venue Southwark Playhouse Elephant in Elephant & Castle would open in January 2023, and that their existing venue would be renamed Southwark Playhouse Borough. The theatre also announced new productions including Berlusconi A New Musical, and new comedy Windfall. Book tickets to Brilliant Jerks at Southwark Playhouse Borough in London
