Synopsis:

In the not-too-distant future characters on soap operas can be played by robots—or so says Alan Ayckbourn in this madcap comedy, which also manages to be a hilarious satire of the TV business. In a backwater studio where a once-great director is shooting hospital dramas, aspiring writer Adam notices unprogrammed laughter in an actoid named Jacie Tripplethree(JC333). He discovers that she has an imagination, the result of what she calls a fault in her programming. Adam wants to build a new television series around her but the studio won’t hear of it. He also finds he is falling in love with the charming robot—and nobody wants to hear that.
 
Jacie is one of Ayckbourn’s greatest characters– Her portrayer won all of London’s major acting awards. Britain’s “grand master of comedy” is also one of the Players Club’s favorites (Communicating Doors, Absurd Person Singular). Will Adam get the green light on his series? Will love prevail? And what would that be like, anyway? Come and find out!
