Everyone writes instructions to their future selves. But what happens if the future starts writing back? Rosy Carrick is about to find out…

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. 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 complex and emotional performance explores the realities of time travel and self-determination – taking in Bowie, motherhood and some most heinous hangovers along the way.

Winner of Brighton Fringe’s Best New Play Award 2018 and The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence, Passionate Machine is a hilarious and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation and finding yourself – literally.

‘Excellent show – this is fresh writing at its very best’ Fringe Review

‘Intelligent, articulate & funny… an entertaining hour full of warmth and compassion’ The Scotsman

‘Elegant, delightful, heartbreakingly beautiful’ Total Theatre

‘A narrative of obsession with a clever and destabilising time-travelling framework, bags of wit and enormous heart… Carrick has crafted something genuinely one of a kind.’ Exeunt

Theatre @DraperHall is curated by its Artistic Director Stefania Bochicchio, CEO of Infallible Productions, member of the EdFringe society and UK co-director of the ITI (International Theatre Institute), the largest arts organisation in the world.

ITI was created on the initiative of the first UNESCO Director General, Sir Julian Huxley, and the playwright and novelist, JB Priestly in 1948, just after the Second World War, and at the beginning of the Cold War, when the Iron Curtain divided the East and the West. Its aim is to promote communication and understanding between people though the practice and performance of the Arts.
