"It’s as if My Dinner with Andre had been co-written by Thomas Pynchon and William Gibson" - Brian Howe, Indyweek

 ABOUT THE PLAY

What do we gain in our quest for immortality?

What might we lose?

Is technological progress the product of free will...

or a Faustian bargain?

 

SYNOPSIS

Plagued by a digital doppelganger, young Edwin agrees to participate in a study run by the mysterious Professor Southcott. The contract Edwin signs promises him wealth and a clean slate; in exchange, he must upload his mind into Dummy, a robot capable of mirroring Edwin’s being through artificial intelligence.

A horrifying yet humorous exploration of the fragility of the human soul.

 

Played in Brooklyn at The Brick!
