Witness the rise and fall of a new(t) capitalism. Deep below Summerhall, an ocean of opportunity arises as a new resource makes contact. Global risk and technological revolution come together in this immersive experience from international award-winning Knaïve Theatre. The creators of Edinburgh Fringe 2017 sell-out Bin Laden: The One Man Show bring you a contemporary re-imagining of Karel Capek's apocalyptic science-fiction satire. Featuring surround sound installation by sonic artist Robert Bentall and produced in association with Royal Exchange Theatre, Square Chapel and Waterside. Warning: life jackets must be worn at all times.
