A Machine they're Secretly Building is about how we got to the point where our governments are spying on us and how that is changing who we are.

The show takes in the 1972 chess world championships between Bobby Fischer of the United States and defending champion Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union; a disco in Oklahoma; the cafeteria at CERN [the European organisation for nuclear research]; the erosion of privacy and Edward Snowden, former Central Intelligence Agency employee turned whistle-blower. It charts a course from the secrets of WWI intelligence through to 9/11 and the terror of a future that might already be upon us.

This is thoroughly entertaining, incisive, fact-based theatre based on extensive research. It opens our eyes, makes us think and challenges us to question what we are told. In an increasingly divided and unpredictable world A Machine They're Secretly Building is becoming increasingly relevant.

'This is coolly reasoned theatre, produced with stylish aplomb.' – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
