Queen Mary Theatre Company Auto-Nation



On the verge of a natural disaster, a prison guard is called into work and discovers a newcomer to the team – an artificial intelligence named Sally. When the city is evacuated, what happens to the prisoners? Inspired by real-life events that happened during Hurricane Katrina, Auto-Nation is a play about a criminal system in crisis that offers a modern twist on the troubled question of automating processes. Derek is still a lazy piece of shit. Karen drinks her coffee. Andrew reads inmate's personal letters for fun. There is a hurricane on the way. The waters are rising.
