The (Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence
by Madeleine George
Directed by Emily Scott Banks
Watson: trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; unstoppable super-computer which became the reigning Jeopardy! champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. These four faithful companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping play. It’s a loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people—and machines—upon which we all depend, and to the strength of our connections to one another.
