From the publisher: “In the near-distant future, an NYC charter school becomes the first to welcome artificially intelligent students. However, new AI students Olive and Godfrey receive a chilly welcome from the already self-conscious and stressed-out members of the Junior class. When a reality show swoops in to capture this social experiment on camera, the priorities and moralities of the student body are turned inside-out. At turns both droll and touching, this dark new play questions how we reconcile the thin line between out ever-improving technologies and what it means to be human”

A copy of the play to review for preparation is available in the Performing Arts office. Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
