A new play by Emily Jenkins
Directed by Anna Ledwich

Inspired by the true, heartfelt online stories of students, Cookies follows seven teenagers dealing with the effects of sexting, radicalisation, cyber bullying and our wider digital world…

Sosa, a tough, gay, streetwise Londoner finds solace in the tunes of her favourite rap artist, but her online world comes crashing down when she finally meets her idol.

Eva, an aspiring vlogger, splits with avid gamer Simon and is forced to deal with the devastating effects of sexting and repetitive online abuse.

Salena, infatuated with pop star Zayn Malik, starts an online friendship with another faceless superfan. As a result of their conversations the young Muslim woman begins to grapple with her faith and is persuaded to make a long journey to an unknown fate.


Directed by Anna Ledwich, design by Frankie Bradshaw, lighting by Elliot Griggs, sound design by Max Pappenheim, projection design by Nina Dunn, movement by Natasha Khamjani, casting by Ellie Collyer-BristowCookies takes us on an astonishing digital journey which promises to redefine how we perceive our online world.
