Playwright Kevin Kautzman and producer Jeff Giesea of Crying Hill Media discuss MODERATION, a new play about social media content moderators struggling to stay sane at work. Adapted from a Zoom reading by Spooky Action Theater, MODERATION is presented in podcast format over three episodes – each an act from the play.
A month has passed. The plot thickens and the stakes go nuclear as SHE has discovered just how difficult the job of a content moderator is and that management doesn’t like it when a new hire visits the shrinks too often. How does one stay sane? Does HE know what HE’s doing, or is HE faking it in a last ditch effort for a promotion and possible ascent to a role with the Company?
In this the final act of MODERATION, another month has passed and we discover SHE has passed her probation. Now HE will finally have a shot at a big promotion and a move into the Company. SHE only has to stay at the job for another few months to prove HE’s a competent manager. Surely SHE can last a few more months, right?
