43 Stages of Grieving
Written by Micharne Cloughley
Directed by Zacharcy Boulton
Performed by Merlynn Tong, Ngoc Phan and Shari Irwin
43 STAGES OF GRIEVING tells the story of a robot who is pregnant, and dying. Robots are not supposed to be able to get pregnant. And yet, our robot, Taya, is pregnant. As she tries to find someone / something to look after the one / thing she is pregnant with, she will move in with a human, who is also dying. Together, they do in fact move through 43 stages of grieving.
A comedy until it is not a comedy, this play is about the complicated future of death, but it is also about hope. Hope that robots will be nice, humans will be rational, and that no matter how far away we get from being ‘natural’, nature will find us all in the end.
