Can a computer program, that basically shuffles numbers of zero and one, duplicate the ability of the neurons to create minds, with mental states, understanding, perceiving. Can we replicate consciousness?

David sets his brother Lewis up on a blind date with April. April is like no woman Lewis has ever met before. She is beautiful, kind and intelligent. In fact, she seems perfect, perhaps even too perfect to be realů

A moving and fascinating story about the modern intersection of grief, technology and late capitalism, R and D asks what's more powerful: science or the soul? And when it comes to our obsession with 'research and development', how far is too far in the search for 'progress'?

R and D was first performed at the Hampstead Theatre Downstairs on 22 September 2016.
