CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN THEATER FESTIVAL Presents

UNCANNY VALLEY
A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

By THOMAS GIBBONS
Directed By TOM DUGDALE
With BARBARA KINGSLEY and ALEX PODULKE

Meet Julian - one body part at a time - the product of a life extension laboratory. Claire, a neuroscientist, is tasked with teaching him to be human. This mesmerizing examination of the future, sparks an ethical and social debate about the consequences of creation.

This spellbinding and deeply satisfying new play travels to the ethical heart of humankind's bid to outrace mortality. How far are we willing to go to forget, while insisting on never being forgotten?

Noted for presenting new works to audiences in West Virginia, Baltimore and Washington DC, the Contemporary American Theater Festival makes its New York debut with Uncanny Valley.
