An Oldham Coliseum Theatre production
Four Minutes Twelve Seconds
By James Fritz
Nothing dies online…except reputation.
Seventeen-year-old Jack has a bright future ahead of him. His parents, Di and David, have devoted their lives to giving him every opportunity they never had. As a result, Jack is smart, outgoing, and well on his way to leaving Oldham to study law at university.
But a startling incident threatens to ruin everything they've striven for: an intimate video of Jack and his girlfriend Cara has appeared online. As events begin to accelerate, Di and David start to doubt their son, his closest friends, and ultimately themselves – who can they trust?
Four Minutes Twelve Seconds deals with how we see ourselves and others, the dangers of modern technology and how far parents will go to protect their children. This deeply provocative and topical drama was nominated for an Olivier Award on its West End debut in 2015. Writer James Fritz has updated the play to be set in Oldham, especially for the Coliseum
