Description

Adam, a hyper-intelligent AI, is cold, awkward and doesn't make sense. Mary, an overworked Botany undergrad, is paid to show him what real people are like. But despite her initial disinterest in Adam, his charming naivety grows on the ordinarily disconnected student. When an unlikely friendship blossoms between them, Mary and Adam find themselves pawns in a much darker scientific experiment. At the hands of a pair of egotistical scientists, the foundations of humanity are put to the test, for both Adam and his human creators.

Enjoyed this show. Powerful performance, well written with thought provoking content. Professionally acted with moving performance from Mary. We'll done

A good little piece carried by great performers. Special mention to the female scientist (didn't catch the name!) but this is a young actor to look out for.

A beautiful and heartfelt show. The writing genuinely surprised me at moments with how strong it was - this is a student production, but it felt much more like a professional piece. Excellent acting from a small, strong cast that were capable of landing jokes as well as emotionally heavy scenes. A true all-rounder, and a wonderful way to spend an hour of my time. Bravo!

An amazing thought provoking moral dilemma. Well acted by all, humourous, but also sad, yet hopeful. Well done! A real treat.

If you’re at the Fringe, this is a must see performance! Intriguing storyline with some great acting - Mary was captivating and gave a credible interpretation of the character! An hour well spent, we really enjoyed it!

Ben Loveday 88 days ago

Really engaging and some really funny parts often enabled by Dr Cavendish’s great sense of timing and ad-libbing.
Would definitely recommend seeing this.

Very enjoyable, a great concept and some very emotional moments. Definitely worth 45 minutes of your day.
