A Machine they're Secretly Building 

Peer into the machine of surveillance in this all-encompassing performance piece from Proto-type Theater.

A Machine they’re Secretly Building charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and the terror of a future that might already be upon us.

**** “This smartly intelligent hour-long whizz through the world of surveillance, and the way governments legitimise spying on their citizens, makes you question what we mean by a terrorist and where the real threat lies… This is coolly reasoned theatre, produced by Proto-type Theater with stylish aplomb.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
