    Fresh from a debut run at the Pleasance, Edinburgh Fringe 2021.

    In the not too distant future, millionaire and inventor (think Elon Musk with a further attitude problem) ‘Hugh’ from Hu-Bris industries is launching the first superhuman artificial intelligence at a press conference. And you’re invited. ‘Eugene’ is a show about what happens when we give technology the power over us, with an anthropomorphic power point. Think The Terminator does a Ted Talk with Steve Jobs.

    A comedy theatre show that comes with integrated captioning via The Difference Engine, delivering part of the story through your smart device and meaning that every performance is deaf friendly.

    Supported by Arts Council England and received the Pleasance National Partnerships Award for Yorkshire 2020/21.

    With support from Arts Council England Attenborough Arts Centre, In Good Company, Barnsley Civic, Theatre in the Mill and Sunglow’s The HUB, with dramaturgy support from Fringe First award winner Dick Bonham, Uncanny Theatre’s Natalie Bellingham, LaPelle’s Factory’s Ollie Smith, award-winning comedian Tom Taylor and Deaf actress/practitioner Emily Howlett.
