About the Play

“I can glimpse a hazy network of lines and bands that keep changing their positions. It’s almost as if the stars are tangled in a ghostly spider’s web. The whole network is beginning to glow – to pulse with light, exactly as if it were alive. And I suppose it is: or is it something as much beyond life as that is above the inorganic world?”

Arthur C Clarke, Childhood’s End

After a successful run at the Bread and Roses in Clapham, we’re back and ready to hit the stage at the Etcetera Theatre for the Camden Fringe!

Hiveminds are becoming increasingly in vogue at the moment – and maybe the more specific question we should be asking is “what is happening in our world to make us think this” rather than simply “why”.

SUM depicts characters who have entered this contract to share these minds between them in a much more intimate way than the illusions that our social media now provide. They question concepts that we have accepted since time began – love, birth, war and loss – and still manage to find their own journeys despite the information that has been shared. Who is the pioneer of the technology? Who will use it for good (whatever that means in this reality), and who will use it to further their own ends? Should everyone be able to connect?
