A chilling tale of mystery, sentience and loss inspired by an 19th century thinking machine.
- A cabin aboard The Otis. Night.
Surrounded by well-travelled packing crates and empty wine bottles, a drunken and dying Johann Nepomuk Maelzel revisits scenes from his life, losses and adventures with the amazing, chess playing mechanical human known as, The Turk.
Fuelled with alcohol and yellow fevered madness, Maelzel and The Turk explore the sacrifice of the showman, the promise of the engineer and the passion of the dreamer against a philosophical backdrop of life, love, cognition and existence.There will be a post show Q & A session on Wednesday 26th September.
Supported by The Arts Council of England and Co-Produced with Harrogate Theatre
