A Machine They're Secretly Building
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
