An Unexpected Electric Nativity & Two
July 23, 2017.2:00 pm-4:30 pm
Blurb for An Unexpected Electric Nativity by Jared More:
A short play for two humans and two robots. Late at night in a laboratory, the night before testing day. Two humanoid robots accidentally come to life. As they explore their new-found faculties, discovering their limbs and their surroundings, they learn more and more how to be human. But when their creators discover them awake, how will the robots match up to their human counterparts? This imaginative new play explores the curiosity and joy of being alive. At once thoughtful and fun, An Unexpected Electric Nativity promises a touching and joyous exploration of life and humanity. Running time 1hr 5 min
Blurb for Two by Jim Cartwright:
In a bustling northern English pub, a witty, bickering landlord and landlady and their twelve regulars masterfully lead you through one of Jim Cartwright’s most moving and exposing plays. Fresh from a highly-praised run at the Drama Barn in York, the UK’s most active university drama society presents this electrifying, fast-paced production that sees just two actors play fourteen characters that seem at once larger-than-life and reassuringly familiar. Two intricately dances on the line between hilarity and gut-wrenching tragedy. This exploration of relationships, grief and community is a celebration of the human bond. Running time 1hr 10 min
Sunday 23 July – 14:00 – £10
