Theatre / Comedy
Scaled effingrobots
Artificial Intelligence is on the way, and it will be powerful. What happens to us when it arrives? How will it perceive humanity? Can it learn ... to love? After getting hit on by a chatbot, one horny science fiction nerd is on a quest to make it with a new AI overlord.

Written and performed by L. Nicol Cabe.


“it will be the artists like her who have to size up AIs and teach us how to make love with them, or at least make them love us.”
Tim Lloyd, The Advertiser

“A Geeky, Funny Thought-Provoking Experience”
Cameron Lowe, Tupla Magazine

“a thought-provoking performance that made me want to understand more about AI ”
Tori Brookes, The Clothesline
