Uncanny Valley – Edinburgh International Science Festival

Ross Allan is appearing in Uncanny Valley at the Festival Theatre Studio, Edinburgh from Tuesday 4th – Saturday 8th April 2017

In this interactive show, Uncanny Valley asks you, the audience, to interact with a real ‘live’ robot and help a futuristic science teacher tell the story of Ada and her best friend OKAY (Outstandingly Knowledgable Android Youth). OKAY is under threat of being terminated and the only way to stop this is to prove he or she is exactly the same as you or me. Watch as OKAY grows and learns, join in by asking your own questions and try to decide whether you think OKAY is simply electrical impulses or … Something more. Something almost human.

Written by Rob Drummond and presented by Borderline Theatre, Uncanny Valley was awarded Best Production for Children and Young People at the 2015-16 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland.
