“We keep your memories safe, so you don’t have to.”
A heavily pregnant ex-ballerina, a child detective, a bitter puppeteer and a feminist pop princess hurtle towards Mars. The world is watching. Isn’t it?
On the eve of a revolution, Nicki and Caroline attempt to gain control over their lives as their A.I. superior, Alex, dances the night away.
And on New Earth, Esta & Isabelle forge hope through a new kind of relationship.
Told across several decades, from Melbourne to Mars, Keziah Warner’s startling, provocative and funny new play explores humanity’s desire to dictate how we’re perceived by others. Control delves deep into our relationship with technology: the moral ambiguities, the dependencies, the possibilities…
Control was developed through Red Stitch’s INK new writing program.
