English science fiction play, directed by Sareesh Sudhakaran. Here’s the trailer:
What if robots looked like humans?
If God created man in his image, then what would man’s creations look like?
Watch the future played out in six short acts – from the beginning to the very end, and beyond.
Since none of this has happened yet, we can see the lighter side of it. And, you’ll laugh so loud it will be heard in outer space.
About the Play
Science fiction is rarely represented in theater. I created this play as an homage to Rossum’s Universal Robots, by Karel Capek.
The play is:
- a comedy
- 100% original, and is
- about 90 minutes long, depending on how hard and long you laugh.
It is divided into six acts:
Act One: Original Sin
Events leading up to the unveiling of the very first robot.
Act Two: Then we sell
Humans are not humans if they don’t turn everything into a product.
Act Three: The Four Laws
Should scientists have the right to decide? Or should Dr. Fingerbottom?
Act Four: Singulariy
If humans can’t tell robots apart, then can robots tell us apart?
Act Five: The Last Human
Is this going to be the last day for humanity? Who will survive?
Act Six: The Arrangement
How will robots treat the last human? Can she find love?
