I WOKE UP FEELING ELECTRIC
By Jack Robson
Bertie, what's the weather like?
Bertie, how's my commute?
Bertie, define 'ineluctable'.
A work-life balance is hard to find when you're an AI assistant. Luckily for Bertie, it's easy to enjoy your job when you were literally made for it. Sending emails, making playlists, checking the weather forecast — he loves it all. But one night, after he's updated, Bertie's world is upended and he's forced to assess the limits of his occupation, his isolation, and his own free will. I Woke Up Feeling Electric is a human play about technological minds, examining concepts of identity and humanity in the context of artificial intelligence.
