"Do you want to live forever?"


Polly and Owen have nailed it

Successful in their careers and wildly in love with each other, they feel ready to take on the world

But when a mysterious new technology, promising a break from the daily grind, creeps into everyone's phones, their world is turned upside down

As the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, Polly and Owen are forced to question whether their definitions of reality and freedom are the same

Girl in the Machine is a disturbing but compassionate vision of our potential digital future, and what it might mean for 'life' as we know it


' ... a gripping two-hander, a piece of dystopian sci-fi ... takes our present-day unease about the intrusiveness of technology and pushes it a step into the future ... a high-stakes, will-she-won't-she battle that keeps us on edge throughout" ~ Guardian

' ... with a poetic heart worthy of Ray Bradbury at his warmest... a show that hums and throbs through its plea for the flesh and blood messiness of life over the delusions provided by virtual pleasures during increasingly sour times" ~ Herald

"An exploration of the role of technology in modern life and its potentially dehumanising effects interesting and current" ~ WhatsOnStage
