Hyperlynx was performed as a one act rehearsed reading at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2001. Its grim premonition of the terrorist activity of September 11th, necessitated that John McGrath wrote a second act. He completed the play in November before his death in January 2002.
Hyperlynx was the winner of the Fringe First Award, Edinburgh 2002
