Synopsis:
You've probably never seen anything quite like The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence, an endlessly inventive, thought-provoking meditation on companionship, devotion and artificial intelligence. Watson is a trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes... a loyal engineer who built Bellís first telephone... an unstoppable super-computer that became reigning Jeopardy! champ... and an amiable techno-dweeb just looking for love. The play jumps through time periods as it follows these multiple Watson incarnations, embodied by a single actor, who is surrounded by Merrick, his nemesis, and Eliza, the object of his desire. A highly original play, nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2014.
Seeking:
Watson, 20s-30s. Loyal, overconfident and disarmingly intimate. Requires a versatile actor who can quickly switch between multiple characters.
Merrick, 30s-40s. Ambitious, calculating and passionately heartless. Requires an actor with a gift for compelling speech.
Eliza, 25-35. Brilliant, needy and tenaciously inquisitive. Requires an actor with a gift for emotional resonance.†
All actors will play multiple characters, and all roles are available.
Production Dates
- Performances will be Friday, March 23 at 8 pm; Saturday, March 24 at 3 pm and 8 pm; and Sunday, March 25 at 3 pm.
