It's almost impossible to discuss James Graham's new play Privacy without saying too much. So here's what I will say:

  • Privacy is a frequently entertaining, sometimes horrifying examination of (the lack of) privacy in today's world, as seen from the point of view of someone new to the world of online dating.
  • Daniel Radcliffe's charm and sheer likability carry the play through some dull parts.
  • Privacy would be much improved with 20 minutes or so carved away.
  • The rest of the cast is also pretty wonderful: De'Adre Aziza, Raffi Barsoumian, Michael Countryman, Rachel Dratch, and Reg Rogers.
  • Josie Rourke's direction is well-paced and creative.
All in all, Privacy is a well-disguised lecture that I'm glad I saw.
