Black Flag Theatre: Uncanny Valley
March 30, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$29
Don’t miss Black Flag Theatre Company’s regional premiere!
Black Flag Theatre Company opens their inaugural season with the regional premiere of Uncanny Valley by Thomas Gibbons, playwright in residence at InterAct Theatre Company in Philadelphia. Sue Birch (Artistic Director of Theatre Britain) stars as Claire, a retiring neuroscientist tasked with one final project – to teach the newest advancement in artificial intelligence (Michael Salimitari, Perfect Wedding) how to be human. This new play draws on current research in artificial intelligence and robotics to explore the painful divide between creator & creation and the ethical minefield that awaits us all in the very near future.
A neuroscientist and a nonbiological human find themselves on a collision course of technology and ethics as they confront the protean nature of human consciousness in the 21st century. The show runs March 30 – April 28 at the Cox Building Playhouse. Get more information and tickets here.
