Come On Over Ensemble Theater presents the world premiere of THE SHEPHERDS’ SINGULARITY, a collaboratively devised, physical-theater-driven, futuristic play-with-music featuring tales of hardship, terrible weather, time travel, technology, talking animals, miracles, angels, and singularities.
THE SHEPHERDS’ SINGULARITY is based on The Second Shepherds’ Play, a medieval comedy featuring three English shepherds who time-travel to Bethlehem and witness the birth of Jesus Christ. Come On Over has incorporated this medieval legend into a futuristic play about the technological Singularity: the premise that artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence by 2030, rendering human beings obsolete. Shepherds, technology experts, Bethlehem Pennsylvania, old-school computer games, angels, scorned wives, and sheep collide in this fantastic journey through time, space, and what it means to be human.
