Tuesday, August 20, 7:00pm: The Private Sector by Cory Finley, directed by Victor Pappas 
Wednesday, August 21, 7:00pm:   A Perfect Robot by Sarah Saltwick, directed by Anita Montgomery 

 

In Cory Finley's The Private Sector, four new hires at an elite hedge fund endure an increasingly strenuous wilderness training retreat, fighting to assert their worth as human assets before a strange and ruthless managing director. A fascinating new play which examines the competing forces of sex, power, ethics, and ambition.

In A Perfect Robot, playwright Sarah Saltwick introduces the extraordinary "Mollybot," a female robot who may well pass the Turing test for humanness; her creator has gone missing, and there's only one chance left to convince investors of her worth. An up-to-the-minute examination of the implications of robotics' rapid advancement, which will soon take mankind into completely uncharted territory.
