When AI meets ego.
A new play by Jamie Rycroft

What happens when you encounter an invention that could change the world? And who would you destroy to take control of it?

A Professor of linguistics, his prize PHD student and an ambitious computer science undergraduate wrestle for control of a new, logical language which will transform the way we communicate. Jamie Rycroft’s new play for Corkscrew Theatre explores both the current zeitgeist and the age-old human traits of ambition and greed. Let the games begin.

ABRA is produced by Corkscrew Theatre Company with financial assistance provided by the Combined Actors of Cambridge
