Sex With Robots & Other Devices
About Sex With Robots
“I turned it off. Shut it down. Re-booted it. It started asking questions and I didn’t want that, made me feel uncomfortable.”
In a world where your partner can arrive in an Amazon package, or your child can be chosen off the shop shelf, how much will curiosity and ease play into people’s temptation.
Sex With Robots and Other Devices is the new play from Writers’ Guild nominee Nessah Muthy (Heroine, The Host, Gastronauts), presented in a co-production between King’s Head Theatre and Cloakroom Theatre. Cloakroom are an all-female collective, and are working with an all-female creative team to create the show. Sex With Robots directly precedes the King’s Head’s Who Runs The World? season (by female playwrights), and is a direct response to the under-representation of female voices in theatre.
The piece has been inspired by a wealth of research including the work of Isaac Asimov, Abyss Creations and their development of 'real dolls’, and the Science Museum's robotics exhibition 2017. It takes a bold look at the development of robotics, and the ethics behind their use in day to day life. Having been explored by numerous Films and Television series, Sex With Robots and Other Devices is a unique concept for the stage and live audiences.
