Event description
Eve created her ideal family—now it looks like a failed experiment. A futuristic family drama about the ancient roots of being human.

About this event

Evelyn Carlyle married the perfect man and created her ideal family. But when her three adult children return home to celebrate their parents’ 30th anniversary, Evelyn's creation starts to look like a failed lab experiment.

Choice, identity and the nature of connection collide in a gripping exploration of the intimate role of science and technology in our lives. How does technology shape our deepest familial relationships in ways we don’t understand or even recognize? What does it mean to grow-up in an age when technology gives us once impossible choices?

A powerful futuristic family drama that gets at the ancient roots of what it is to be human, or not.

A world premiere. The Anniversary is staged in-the-round.
