iPA: A theatre production

Part of a set of pieces written for Bloomin' Arts - a theatre company for adults with learning disabilities. The play is called iPA and looks at how disabled people would interact with ultra efficient artificially intelligent support androids. The outcome, perhaps inevitably, is a sinister one...
