Technical and designer roles


A Glitch In My Code

9:30pm, Tue 12th February 2019–Sat 16th February 2019, at Corpus Playroom
Lent Week 4

Looking for:

  • stage manager
  • light designer
  • sound designer
  • photographer
  • video recorder

‘But you seem so… So human, so… alive. Truth is I’ve never stood this close to an android before. If I hadn’t known, I wouldn’t have been able to tell.’

'A Glitch In My Code' is looking for a production team!
The play is about an android, who gradually acquires sentience. It is a three-hander, which requires a minimal set and overall operates on a very small scale. It explores the relationship between people and AI as well as creates a world, in which robots do not take over the world, as we are used to seeing in most sci-fi narratives, but rather feel vulnerable and lost in light of their newly gained consciousness. In this story, they evoke sympathy rather than hostility.

To apply, send me (sc2110) an email to register your interest! You may include some relevant experience, but none necessary :)

So excited to hear from you!

Contact: sc2110@cam.ac.uk
Deadline for applications: Saturday 15th December 11:00pm
