Teenage wannabe Youtuber Roija spends most of her time in her bedroom making videos and counting likes and subscribers. She Vlogs mainly about her amazing sister’s abilities and latest adventures. She also gives useful tips on how to be the most successful Youtuber ever
"The playwright and director Kristina Brändén Whitaker provides unusually nuanced insights into the play #WRU" - Göteborgs-Posten 14 Oct 2019
“Brändén Whitaker has written a snappy and thought-provoking monologue which doesn’t waver from the tendencies of stress, danger and bullying that the Internet can cause.” - Kulturbloggen 2 Oct 2019
Roija’s sister isn’t at home right now – “A: Has she gone away to Spain with her friends? B: Is my sister a famous YouTuber and meeting her fans abroad?” Or is it more serious? Her parents’ concern for her sister leaves little time for anything else. They definitely don’t understand, like at all, how important YouTube has become for Roija.
#WRU shines a light on online and “in real life” identities, and how hard it can be sometimes to show each other much needed support, even within the family, in the face of crisis. Where are others when we need them – and where are we when they need us? #WhereaReyoU?
