Event description

Description

Answer this: how far would you go to better yourself? Would you lie to your mother? Would you deny your inheritance? Would you intervene with your DNA?

Following a sell-out run in 2017, Invincible is returning to Bristol in spring 2018!

The result of extensive consultation with the University of Bristol’s Synthetic Biology researchers, Invincible puts each and every audience member at the heart of a contemporary moral dilemma. This is an urgent and topical play, commissioned to feed into a critical debate as scientists break new ground daily.

Written in collaboration with the University of Bristol’s play-writing fellow, David Lane, and produced by theatrical pioneers, Kilter, performances take place with small audiences at ‘point-blank range’. Staged in the pressure-cooker environment of a real residential flat, three women traverse three generations as the political and scientific become intensely personal. And all along Bristol's Synthetic Biologists will be listening.

Each performance is followed by a discussion with the cast and specialist guests. Then it’s up to you: how far would you go?
