Polly and Owen have nailed it. Successful in their careers and wildly in love with each other, they feel ready to take on the world. But when a mysterious new technology, promising a break from the daily grind, creeps into everyone's phones, their world is turned upside down. As the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, Polly and Owen are forced to question whether their definitions of reality and freedom are the same.

Girl in the Machine is a disturbing but compassionate vision of our potential digital future, and what it might mean for 'life' as we know it. The play premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 2017.

Review:

A sinister story of love and addiction that revisits age old themes whilst thrusting them into a dystopian digital future... thanks to Smith's cut to the chase dialogue, the horrors of what that could ultimately entail are viscerally realised. --Edinburgh Evening News

A gripping two-hander, a piece of dystopian sci-fi in the manner of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror... takes our present-day unease about the intrusiveness of technology and pushes it a step into the future... Smith tunes in to several of our contemporary concerns, including the centralising control of big data and the blur between work and home in an always-on digital world... A high-stakes, will-she-won't-she battle that keeps us on edge throughout... Excellent. --Guardian
