The Golden Record
"The Golden Record," a new play by Micah Kosstrin-Greenberg, pioneers the use of virtual theater for science fiction. It brings a futuristic cosmic fantasy to life on Zoom using beautiful visual effects, digital makeup, audience participation and techniques of immersive theater. The audience converses with the actors and guides the plot development interactively.
The play's title is a reference to a NASA time capsule program, "The Golden Record," in which Voyagers 1 and 2--robotic interstellar probes--carry a twelve-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.
Into the cold universe have been sent two complete human consciousnesses, Rebecca and Andrew. The bridge between them is a newly emergent female artificial intelligence. Can she recapture Rebecca's memories, which have been lost to interstellar hazards, and save Andrew from a lethal collision in space? Power over the characters lies in the audience's hands: will they choose a painful reality, or a beautiful creation?
