Written by Roslyn Helper in collaboration with SwiftKey Note
Directed by Jana Arnold
David values a full-time job and a gym membership, and is having an affair with Clare. Maree prefers to do her shopping online and has a drinking problem. Jimmy has just returned from “the other side.” And Sam is a teen goth who likes welding. The story starts in a living room and ends in the deepest reaches of the black hole that is the internet.
This poetically absurd modern drama takes our most familiar truths and our most popular aspirations to a level of strangeness beyond comprehension – but is it a point of no return? Playwright Roslyn Helper partnered with a predictive text AI program to create a theatrical “algorithm” that asks us to consider the increasing role that AI plays, and will play, in our cultural lives. The performance will be followed by a discussion on the future of AI and cultural expression.
