Me, Myself & AI
Ophelia Woolf is not okay. Her boyfriend Hame has taken a vow of silence. Her formal dress is lost in transit. And her Dad doesn’t want her to move to Earth 2.0 after graduation. To make matters worse her iOS is broken, her Death Date keeps changing and Armageddon has been scheduled for seven days from now. But she’s going to fine. She’s going to be completely fine. Ophelia has to be. There’s no other option.
ME, MYSELF & AI is a funny fierce examination of hope and expectations struggling against anxiety and disconnection in our age of hyper-connectedness and existentialism. It’s a sci-fi riff on Shakespeare’s Ophelia that’s about finding resolve, discovering your voice, adapting to change and having to be okay with not being okay. Black Mirror meets the Bard in this imaginative and uplifting work from acclaimed playwright Daniel Evans (600 Ways To Filter A Sunset, Opening A Fuzzwollop’s Frame of Mind).
