This short audio piece is set in a futuristic post-Humanoid Revolution society when human’s aspiration, to be less emotional, has manifested to an extreme. A humanoid investigates an entirely isolated human living in a screen dominated pod.
Faye Maughan plays the seemingly mischievous humanoid, flirting between being human-like to computer-like, with razor-sharp precision.
Length: 6 minutes.

We are delighted to confirm that we have a new short audio drama set in a futuristic post-Humanoid Revolution society. This will be released on the eve of the end of lockdown in England.
Faye Maughan plays a highly sophisticated Humanoid desperately needing an emotional response from a human. This is the perfect short for those who feel they have overdone the screen-time in recent months…
Our next short audio story will be in June. In the meantime actor John Marshall has alerted me to our past outdoor production. It has been a decade since we performed my play, Abelard and Heloise, at Glastonbury Abbey. Have a look at this short promotional film here.
I originally adapted the love letters of Abelard and Heloise into a play that was on at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I later revisited the play, setting it in an outdoor environment. The combination of rehearsing and performing at the historically relevant, beautiful and peaceful setting over a summer was joyful. We had fun, thanks to a talented team.
