Sex with Robots and Other Devices
“I turned it off. Shut it down. Re-booted it. It started asking questions and I didn’t like that, made me feel uncomfortable.”
Winner of the 2018 Adrian Pagan Award for Best New Play, Nessah Muthy’s fearless examination of the future of sex comes to Incoming after a successful run at The King’s Head Theatre.
Journey to a world where your partner can arrive in an Amazon package or your child can be chosen off the top shelf. It could be the answer to all our problems, but what might we lose along the way?
By turns intriguing, amusing and terrifying, Sex With Robots and Other Devices offers a fascinating vision of where humanity could be heading next…
This production is supported by The King’s Head Theatre, Royal Victoria Hall Foundation and Old Diorama Arts Centre.
Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre in association with HOME.
ABOUT CLOAKROOM THEATRE
Cloakroom Theatre is an all-female collective founded by Bobby Brook, Jennifer Holton, Helen Matravers and Nessah Muthy. Having all worked front of house in some of London's top theatres, we were privy to the best conversations, saved for the cloakroom queue. We aim to create theatre that fuels discussions, divides opinion and encourages conversations to continue well after the show is over.
