Making Love by Jess Scott Driksna


  • King Street Theatre 644 King Street Erskineville, NSW, 2043 Australia

We are living in a complicated era. As technological advances reshape our world, sex and dating have already been irreversibly transformed by dating apps and social media, but where exactly are we heading?

What is the future of love?

What if you were single and lonely in a world getting faster, younger and hotter? Will you end up all alone, wishing you could find the one for you, feeling invisible in a chaotic world with no guarantees? 

Well what if you didn't have to wait for random chance to maybe send an average, organic partner your way? What if you could invest in making every romantic and erotic desire you've ever had a synthetic reality? And what if you could choose everything about your next partner, design absolutely everything about them; their physicality, their personality, their very essence? 

Think about that. Would they be older than you or younger? What would their body be like? What kind of music would they like? Would you make them easily compatible with you or do you like a little friction? Who'd be in charge? What would they be like in bed? What if you could bring every secret fantasy you've ever had to life?

Welcome to the world of Making Love. Set in the maybe not-too-distant future where PAXCORP are providing scientific solutions to the dilemma of human loneliness, join Sara Vidal on the first night of the rest of her non-single life! Meeting her new synthetic partner Darcy for the first time on a double-date, Sara is about to discover if true love lays in the revelation of a perfect synthetic future or haunting a flawed organic past. 

Making Love is the international stage debut of a science fiction romantic comedy parodying the commercialisation of love and sex, the power dynamics of relationships and exploring the outcome of what happens when you get exactly what you’ve wished for.
