Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine – because her future self has already done so and is now stuck 100 years in the past after a failed mission to save Russian revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky from committing suicide.
Given that her knowledge of quantum physics is limited to the works of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rosy must summon the help of science's greatest minds if she is to rewrite history and save herself…
Darting playfully between multiple narratives, this high octane emotional performance takes in science and sci-fi as it explores the realities of time travel and self-determination – taking in Bowie, motherhood, #metoo and some most heinous hangovers along the way.
The narrative is told as a true story, weaving itself into real-life events until fact and fiction become indistinguishable.
The magical realism of Passionate Machine does not require a suspension of disbelief – it invokes one.
Set against the questionable theoretical framework of all your favourite time travel movies, Passionate Machine is a playful, intelligent, very funny and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation and finding yourself – quite literally.
