Fiona Becklestaffe believes she’s been pushed too far by her friends and her partner. She’s comfortable in her retro practical relaxation cubicle – it’s so 21st century – and she relates her posthumous life assessment to her thoughtpad. When her psychometrically-assigned life consort retreats to his personal cubicle for some time with his newly acquired sexbot, Fiona sees the opportunity to settle a few scores.
Set in a time when artificial intelligence has taken over all our menial tasks – including sex – Forgive or Forget explores themes of revenge and moral responsibility using Stoicism and Utilitarianism as guiding lights.
A dark monologue where no-one has the moral high ground and there is only one winner, from award winning writer Chris Brannick and director Karen Kirkup. Music and filming by Chrissie Caulfield.
