Presented by Observatory Theatre and Queensland Multicultural Centre, CONTROL is a sci-fi blockbuster made for the stage. Written by Keziah Warner, directed by Timothy Wynn and starring a small but super-talented cast, it has been met with rave reviews.
The Age has said it is “emotionally intelligent”; ArtsHub, “brilliantly written”; and Theatre Travels said it is “beautifully crafted”. It comes to Brisbane for a strictly limited run of four shows that delves into the ethics and morality of our technological age and future.
The Museum of Childhood is on the brink of a crisis. Revolution is turning the future upside-down and inside-out. Lightyears away, though, a programmer and their A.I. companion come up with the idea, the tools for humanity’s future. Hope is real. But, nobody really knows who is in charge.
CONTROL is told across multiple decades at a time where Big Brother has been launched into space and Earth is a long, long way away. There is urgency to form a new society, but some things cannot be rushed and some questions do not have easy answers—just how human can technology become?
Featuring Triona Calimbayan-Giles, Nykita O’Keeffe, Egan Sun-Bin and Peter Irankunda, CONTROL takes Black Mirror to a whole new level. Find out if there is hope for humanity in a world governed by technology.
CONTROL is on stage for four shows only at Queensland Multicultural Centre, Kangaroo Point from Thursday 9 June to Saturday 11 June. Originally, it was produced by Red Stitch Actors’ Theatre in Melbourne in 2019.
