Cardigan's Spring Play Questions the Future

Cardigan's Spring Play Questions the Future

“I like to think that theater is a great place to bring the community together,” Theater Director Jeff Good shared before the spring play. “But we also want to give you something to think on. The show we have today has to do with artificial intelligence, something I think you boys will encounter more and more and have to grapple with in the future.”

The Factory, written by Lindsay Price, is a fast-paced play with characters whose names span a variety of languages and define their roles for the duration of the play. explains, “The Factory runs like clockwork. The Time to Begin song always begins at 7 am. The official Greeting always takes place at 7:02. The Factory workers follow the rules and do their jobs to the letter. Why shouldn’t they? They are humanoid robots programmed to be efficient and follow the rules. Robots will always do their jobs better than real people. And rules are what make the Factory productive. Or do they? Rules come with red tape. And red tape can act like a wrench in the works.”
