Synopsis

‘You may turn the handle, and I will whirr and calculate without error!

A new play about the life and work of Ada Lovelace, the unsung pioneer of the computing age. ADA re-imagines her carefully controlled childhood, collaboration with Charles Babbage, and fraught relationship with her family legacy, and intertwines Ada’s history with a contemporary story about the potential and possibilities of artificial intelligence.

Initially developed with the support of Poetical Machines, Nottingham Playhouse, and the Arts Council, with music by Haiku Salut.
