Emily Carding and Sweet Productions (England)
A combination of cataclysmic events results in the extinction of the human race, leaving behind an AI being programmed to recreate humanity when the time is right, with the complete works of Shakespeare as a guide to the human spirit. Humanity must thrive... but at what cost?
This original sci-fi storytelling show, written and performed by award-winning actor Emily Carding (‘Richard III (a one woman show)’), was inspired by Mary Shelley's ‘Frankenstein’, and will leave you wondering who the real monster is.
Originally created in collaboration with the London Science Museum, directed by Dominique Gerrard
‘A formidable performance’ (The Stage)
‘Jaw-droppingly assured... there’s a superb cliff-edge to this outstanding production’ (Fringe Review)
‘Emily Carding is one of the UK’s leading Shakespearean actors’ (The Stage)
