What happens to romance when there’s a machine who can do everything for you – cook for you, clean for you, never forget your birthday or how you like your tea, tell you you’re beautiful, hold you when you’re crying and still make you cum?
LOVE+ can’t be about whether or not we can love machines, because we all do already. It’s about what it’ll be like when they start to love us back. Told through sharply scripted snapshots of domestic life with a slight futuristic flare, this is a show about loving, being loved, being human, and whether those things are intertwined.
MALAPROP Theatre is one of Ireland’s most exciting collectives. LOVE+, their debut production, reveals a future that is not-so-distant. They want to know: Would you let this potentially beautiful love story play out? Will you? Could you? Can you?
‘A blackly humorous subversion of the love story.’
‘As wondrously made as the artificial intelligence it predicts.’
