CAN YOU EVER REALLY TRUST A MACHINE?

A few decades from now, a couple are struggling to conceive, but fortunately their company has the perfect solution.

A woman waits in a VR metaverse to do homework with her young daughter.

In a care home staffed by advanced AIs, a woman struggles to make a connection with her android carer.

Three plays at every performance

Interference is a trilogy of near future plays. Staged in an empty office block transformed with vivid projection and atmospheric soundscapes. It asks the question: will technology interfere with what we really need from each other?

Written by Morna Pearson, Hannah Khalil and Vlad Butucea. Directed by Cora Bissett.
