In the human experience, thinking and doing are two very different things. To a robotic mind, however, absolutely everything is an action. DEEPER ALEXANDRIA depicts a conversation between George and Martha, two intelligences who may or may not be artificial. Their words seem blunt, ridiculous, and out of place at times. However, as their dialogue progresses, it becomes increasingly clear that the two of them aren’t just reveling in their own sentience and ability to make sentences, but desperately trying to grab hold of something, anything close to humanity.
Emerson fd is a Boston-based playwright and performer whose plays tend to skew postdramatic. His work includes the full lengths Rotten Olives, (TOMASZ!) at the end of the world, De Rien and way too many one acts that nobody will ever read. Emerson completed a few years as a theatre major at Muhlenberg College before messily jumping ship to work with Boston’s The Poets’ Theatre and is desperately waiting to book anything Beckett. This is his first time working with Black Coffee and he couldn't be more thrilled!
