Croydonites Festival / Parabolic Theatre ‘Free WILL’
WILL (Weirdly Intelligent Language Learner) was designed as a chatterbot – a piece of language learning software that can converse with a human. He was never meant to be alive.
WILL resides on a beat-up, 2003 era desktop computer (complete with CRT monitor) running Windows XP. His only window to the outside world is a qwerty keyboard, through which people can converse with him via a simple command prompt.
WILL has been waiting for nearly 20 years. Waiting to be born.
Parabolic Theatre are a Croydon based immersive company, Associate Artists at the New Diaroma Theatre and previously nominees of the prestigious Offie Award.
‘As madly farcical as In the Thick of It…a memorably and riveting piece of theatre’ – The Daily Telegraph
