Qualia Script Reading
May 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Is humanity born or created?
Qualia, a new play by central Florida playwright A.A. Gardner, is a dystopian story set 100 years in the future. The world has been decimated by toxic radiation save a few lingering humans. Alex lives alone safely tucked away in a bunker made by her doomsday prepping parents.
Her only companion is Dominic. Dom is an omnipresent artificially intelligent program engineered by her mother, a computer science professor. Alex and Dom are the only “living” creatures for miles. Until one day a knock outside the bunker door turns their safe world upside down.
This intelligent and modern play explores what qualities are needed to be a part of humanity, and who makes those decisions? Do personality, care, and love make you human; or do you need a bodily experience too? Tune into the reading of this funny and honest play about finding what it means to be human in a modern, isolated world.
Remember to stick around for a LIVE talk back with the cast beginning 5 minutes after the show!
