"If I malfunction and you are not ready then how will you survive?"

Tom lives with his best friend Drone Girl in the near future where phones, laptops, and all other technological services have become obsolete, replaced by Drone boys and girls. "Drone Girl 9.1.13" looks after Tom who suffers from severe social anxiety. From supervising his job as a bespoke adventures salesman to becoming his "romantic auto-correct", she is always there to catch him before he falls. But when Drone Boy, an older model disappointed by humans, praises her for crippling Tom emotionally, she starts to question her purpose. Yet when her attempts at making Tom more independent increasingly backfire, Drone Girl finds herself split between choices: a losing battle to save Tom or the freedom over purpose alongside Drone Boy.

Relevant and gripping, this heartfelt play explores what we sacrifice on our path towards an easy access existence, our need for connection and the mental health issues resulting out of it. How can one find strength in a world where effort is no longer needed?
