Electric Rosary

  • By Tim Foley. Directed by Elizabeth Freestone
  • 15 June 2020 - 4 July 2020
  • The Studio

'We’re children of God, Sister. No hunk of metal could replace any one of us.'

Behind the crumbling walls of St Grace’s Convent, the future seems a long way away. Hell, even the present feels like a distant world, until the nuns who call it home make the surprising acquaintance of their unholy new resident. Spirited in by the convent’s Mother, Mary is a robot – but is she a blessing or a curse?

Winner of a Bruntwood Prize Judges’ Award, Tim Foley’s miraculous new play brings together nuns and robots on the Royal Exchange stage for the very first time. Sharp, timely and gloriously funny, ELECTRIC ROSARY asks what faith really means in the age of artificial intelligence – and what it means to be human in tomorrow’s world.
