About the play
Believe Alan Turin — that girl is really a robot. It’s just that Mollybot’s face is uncannily human. She hasn’t been so perfect since her creator went missing and there’s only one chance left to convince the investors of her worth. One far away woman holds the key to unlocking it all. A play about robots and octopi, consciousness and programming, passwords and ghosts.
