“The dialogue is intense, perfectly apt for the show’s 30 minute running time, while the actress makes us strongly empathise with her. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” – All Edinburgh Theatre.
“Engaging, mixing the poetic with the robotic.” – A Theatre Blog.
Evaluation centered around a singular condition — one human, average in every way, wakes up strapped to a chair without knowledge of their location or history. Their only company is also their interrogator, an advanced machine with inscrutable origin who wants to know only one thing: are we worth it?
In the face of destruction, the human must defend their species, or decide whether it is worth saving at all.
Through the use of pre–recorded dialogue, Evaluation was a conversation between human and machine, an exploration of the virtues which make us human, and an attempt to understand the suffering that we have caused all over the world.
