Touring Test, The

Written By: Scott Douglas

Synopsis: The Touring Test follows a group of actors in a touring production of Karel Capek’s R.U.R. - their backstage romances and rivalries.  Following each performance, members of the audience are invited to judge which of the actors are human, and which, if any, are robots. Not even the actors know. It is a comedic exploration of love, art, and artificial intelligence.

History: Produced for the 2012 Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Winner of the 2012 Harry Rintoul Award for best new Manitoba play at the Winnipeg Fringe.
