Seven Siblings Theatre presents Stef Smith’s Girl in the Machine – an intimate dystopian drama that explores our potential digital future and how it will affect how we relate to one another. Polly and Owen are thriving and wildly in love, committed to each other and ready to take on the world together. Polly has recently been promoted which has led to workaholic tendencies, until Owen presents her with a new gadget — Black Box — to help her relax. When a mysterious new technology creeps into everyone’s lives the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, and Polly and Owen are forced to question how they each define reality, happiness, and freedom.
