Description

'We're children of God, sister. No hunk of metal could replace any one of us.' Behind the crumbling walls of St Grace's Convent, an exhausted order of nuns needs resurrecting. As Easter approaches, Mother Elizabeth has just the thing. Behold 'Mary', a council-funded robot. Practical and surprisingly funny, for some a blessing, for others a curse - could she be the revelation they have all been praying for? Electric Rosary is a sharp, timely and gloriously funny play by Tim Foley, asking what faith really means in the age of artificial intelligence and what it is to be human in tomorrow's world. It was a Judges' Award winner in the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in 2022.
