Electric Rosary


'We’re children of God, Sister. No hunk of metal could replace any one of us.'

Behind the crumbling walls of St Grace’s Convent, an exhausted order of nuns needs resurrecting. As Easter approaches, Mother Elizabeth has just the thing. Behold ‘Mary’, a council-funded robot. Practical and surprisingly funny, for some a blessing, for others a curse - could she be the revelation they have all been praying for?

Bruntwood Prize Judges’ Award-winner Tim Foley’s miraculous new play is sharp, timely and gloriously funny and brings nuns and robots together on the Royal Exchange stage for the first time. ELECTRIC ROSARY asks what faith really means in the age of artificial intelligence and what it is to be human in tomorrow’s world.
