About ‘Hacked’ by Caravan Stage Company

‘Hacked: the Treasure of the Empire’ plot revolves around the machinations of the Mammon trying to find the stolen treasure, the whereabouts known only to the Hackers. The Mammon must find it or else the Mammon Corp Regime will collapse.

This original Caravan show explores the quest for freedom of expression, in political & social discourse, within the world of the internet & virtual media; examines the ubiquitous presence of surveillance in our lives; and probes the ethics of the dissolution of the public, democratic control over the justice and penal systems.
