May 19th - June 22nd, 2024

by Jay Stull

A World Premiere Production

The Singularity Play is a daring ensemble play that is one part existential comedy, another part Sci-fi horror, and in every part a totally surprising ride. 

In an unused room at the Google offices in Manhattan, a theater troupe has gathered to rehearse a new play written by an advanced AI named "Denise." In an art that relies so substantially upon our human-ness, what does it mean to cede the stage to artificial intelligence? Who are we when reflected by the intelligence we’ve created?
