Theater of the Red Brick Company: "Comic Potential".

The Student Theater "Red Brick Company" presents Alan Ayckbourn's comedy "Comic Potential." The performance is in English.

We are in the near future. Artificial intelligence has permeated every aspect of human life. Even actors in television productions have been replaced by humanoid robots. In a London television studio, one such robot suddenly shows human characteristics and starts laughing uncontrollably during a rehearsal. The female robot is deemed flawed and in need of repair by television producers, but young writer Adam recognizes the potential of the robot, whom he names Jacie. Adam is determined to write a television series for Jacie, but when he encounters resistance from the studio bosses, he embarks with Jacie on an odyssey through London that shows her the limits of her humanity.

With plenty of wordplay and situational comedy, Alan Ayckbourn's 1999 comedy prophetically anticipates current discussions about artificial intelligence and human-machines.
