Love Machines


  • Playwright

    Johnny Hanrahan 

  • Notes

    Presented as part of The Passion Machine's Songs of The Reaper programme. Love Machines was part of Block Three, which also included 'Ghost Acreage at Vixen Time' by Deirdre Anne Hines, and 'Dectire' by John McArdle (both listed separately).

  • Synopsis

    The communal obsession with virtual reality and electronic communication suggests that meaningful physical activity will continue to decline rapidly in the industrialised world. If you lose your body, you lose your mind. Love Machines is a play set in a virtual world where people never meet each other, as they communicate in a virtual world.
