‘It would still be me… they make it like me, look like me, smell like me, talks like me, feels like me… me.
And you… most importantly…
you get me…’

Welcome to a world where your partner can arrive by special delivery, you can replace your ex with a replica, or supplement your waning love life with regular updates. It could be the answer to all our problems… but what might we lose along the way?

Nessah Muthy’s fearless examination of the future of sex offers a fascinating vision of where humanity could be heading next.

Sex with Robots and Other Devices won the King’s Head Theatre’s Adrian Pagan Award and the Live Theatre Newcastle Elevator Lab Bursary, and premiered at the King’s Head Theatre, London, in May 2018 in a co-production between the King’s Head Theatre and Cloakroom Theatre.

Nessah Muthy is a writer for television and theatre. Her other plays include Heroine (HighTide) and The Host (National Youth Theatre).

‘A playwright willing to put big, ambitious ideas on stage’ The Times

‘A fascinating show which leaves lots of questions open and gives a chilling glimpse into a future that is, rather scarily, not that far away’

‘Creepy and inventive… a thoughtful and well-judged meditation on future sexual possibilities’
The Stage

Winner of the Adrian Pagan Award
