Second Afterlife

Dan has done it all – Insta, Tumblr, Fortnite, that misguided foray on Tinder. Profiles, used and deleted. Now he’s ready to reinvent himself. However, there’s a hitch. In order to forge a new identity, Dan has to face up to the ghosts of his profiles. They’re cooler, they've savvier, they're shot from more flattering angles, and they’re not going down without a fight. Second Afterlife is a dark comedy about life (and death) in the digital age.

Inspired by Dante’s Inferno, and in the tradition of Scott Pilgrim vs the World, it is a twisted allegory – a poetic, ass-kicking romp to the darkest corners of the web.

Second Afterlife was originally commissioned by Young & Hungry Arts Trust.
