About Interference

Can you ever really trust a machine?
It is 2040.

A woman waits in a VR metaverse to do homework with her ten year old daughter.

In a care home staffed by advanced AIs, an elderly woman struggles to make a connection with her android carer.

A couple are struggling to conceive, but fortunately their company has the perfect solution.

Interference is a bold and chilling new trilogy of plays set in the near future, directed by National Theatre of Scotland’s Associate Director Cora Bissett and written by three provocative writers: Morna Pearson (Darklands), Hannah Khalil (Metaverse) and Vlad Butucea (Glowstick).

The trilogy will be staged in CityPark, a new office development in Glasgow, from 16 to 30 March 2019. A large empty office space will be transformed by projected visuals and atmospheric soundscapes as the drama unfolds. The opening performance is on Tuesday March 19 2019 at 7pm.

Exploring how technology might alter and impact on parent-child relationships, the future of care for an ageing population, and how far the definition of being human can be stretched, the three plays are each asking questions of both the present and the future. With technology becoming more embedded in our daily lives and weaponised in ever more terrifying ways, and in a world in which many people are finding new ways to define intimacy, sometimes rejecting human connection altogether, Interference asks what is it that we still need from each other?

Interference sees the National Theatre of Scotland staging its first site-specific project of 2019. In recent years the Company has specialised in staging work in unique and unusual locations; Last year included plays performed in a converted lorry on the streets of Paisley (Do’s and Don’ts), on an Aberdeen beach (Rewind Perspective), and within a specially constructed maze in a Glasgow meadow (The Reason I Jump).

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Interference are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
