Girl in the Machine is directed by two-time Sydney Theatre Award Nominee Claudia Barrie (Dry Land at KXT, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo at the Old Fitz) and stars Logie Award Winner Brandon McClelland (Sydney Theatre Co’s The Present, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Foxtel’s Devil’s Playground) and Chantelle Jamieson (Peter Rabbit, STC’s Still Point Turning: The Catherine McGregor Story).
Reminiscent of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror series, Girl in the Machine is a sharply-written play about what it is to be human as technology intrudes further and further into everyday life, and is a profound exploration of connection, love and the enduring power of the human spirit.
Director Claudia Barrie says “in this play we see the blurred lines between reality and fantasy spurred on by the temptation of a utopian paradise. Our protagonists are pulled further and further into a promise of something that may or may not be real. I think it’s a story that will encourage conversation and debate and one the audience will find frighteningly relatable”.
