Alan Ayckbourn’s comedic foray into science-fiction drops us into a not-too-distant future where actors have been replaced by robotic “actoids” and where the art of comedy has been lost. That is until an aspiring young writer with a love of the classics discovers a malfunctioning actoid that has developed a sense of humor all her own. As the duo attempt to ignite their respective TV careers, they soon find themselves challenging the theory that the ability to laugh – as well as the ability to fall in love – is what differentiates computers from their human creators.
