    An awesomely inventive and timely piece that resonates profoundly with today as it imagines a future informed by our present. The central characters are all well-defined, and I appreciate their intersectional richness and the ways their identities clearly influence and impact their decisions, actions, and lives. Goldfinger's exploration of digital footprint, rape culture, activism, and the broad implications of existing in a digitized world is thorough and nuanced. I also appreciated how both theatrical and flexible this piece was--it feels like the kind of piece a production team can clearly put its stamp on. Great for colleges!

    A fast paced, heartbreaking and searing play. "Click" not only speaks to our societies fragmented relationship with technology, rape culture, and gender/identity - but also thrums with a dark humor and surprising tenderness that breaks down the binary code of those heavy topics.

    A stunning play about who owns our identities in a world where everything is always public and available online. I highly recommend it.
