This year’s Toi Wāhine Festival’s Emerging Voices event is a development staging of Adam NZ Award-winning playwright Benny Marama’s next play Artificial Gods.
Eva and Lucy are sex workers – Eva is a seasoned pro, while Lucy is new to the job.
At first, things between them are cordial.
However, Eva starts to suspect that Lucy isn’t being entirely honest with her, while Lucy grows paranoid that Eva is setting her up to fail.
Based on true events, Artificial Gods is a drama about two friends who decide to start a business together. Alternating between their first night and last night working together, the play explores what happens when that friendship becomes professional and how that changes who they are and who they’re perceived to be.
We welcome your feedback in a Q&A session following the show.
