INTERFERENCE

National Theatre of Scotland - Directing Placement

CAN YOU EVER REALLY TRUST A MACHINE?
 

A few decades from now, a couple are struggling to conceive, but fortunately their company has the perfect solution.

A woman waits in a VR metaverse to do homework with her young daughter.

In a care home staffed by advanced AIs, a woman struggles to make a connection with her android carer.

Interference is a trilogy of near future plays. Staged in an empty office block transformed with vivid projection and atmospheric soundscapes. It asks the question: will technology interfere with what we really need from each other?
 

Written by Morna Pearson, Hannah Khalil and Vlad Butucea.

★★★★ (The Herald) 

"Such sci-fi tropes of social engineering may be familiar, but in the current climate they are full of heart and soul in a collective plea for humanity." 

★★★★ (The Stage)

"This is made to feel like a potential reality, rather than fiction. And it's all the more satisfyingly chilling for it." 

★★★★ (The Scotsman)

"..intensely thought-provoking about the possible futures we face, and exhilarating in reminding us of the huge imaginative energy that perhaps represents humanity’s best hope of finding a way through to better times."
