Something Else

The Blank Theatre

Beverly Hills, CA, United States

This is a past event


In Something Else, Rachel has purchased Cynthia, an AI programmed to be a younger version of herself, hoping this will help mend her relationship with her partner Michele. At first, Rachel uses Cynthia to address some past experience with “Mr. John,” a fictionalized version of someone she worked with twenty years earlier. As the play progresses, though, it becomes clear that something else is hidden in Rachel’s unconscious. It’s not until she uses an experimental electrode method of programming Cynthia that she confronts the consequences of her own childhood mistakes, and accepts more fully the long history of her sexuality. She chooses finally to relinquish Cynthia, and she and Michele begin dealing directly with one another.
