Warwick Rep Theatre Company Conscious
Held captive in the windowless laboratory where she was first conceived, the A.I. Alice has only seen the world through the skewed words of her captors, moulded by the sinister intentions of those who created her, wish to sell her, and long to possess her. But when Alice does not play into the goals of her investors, she threatens to dismantle the system she was born to uphold.
In Conscious, emerging playwright Eve Ruck explores a near future where the rich replace the working class with humanoid A.I.’s to create full globally automated capitalism, in a future that is all too possible.
