Call mum. Buy milk. Cancel free trial. Everyone writes instructions to their future selves. But what if the future starts writing back?

Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine—because her future self has already done so and is now stuck 100 years in the past. Given that her knowledge of quantum physics is more Arnold Schwarzenegger than Stephen Hawking, Rosy must summon the help of science’s greatest minds if she is to rewrite history and save herself…

Darting playfully between multiple narratives, this complex and original performance explores the realities of time travel and self-determination—taking in Bowie, motherhood and some most heinous hangovers along the way.

Winner of the Best New Play Award 2018 (Brighton Fringe) and The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence 2018 (Edinburgh Fringe), Passionate Machine is a hilarious and searingly honest UK smash-hit about obsession, salvation and finding yourself—literally.

"A narrative of obsession with a clever and destabilising time-travelling framework, bags of wit and enormous heart...Carrick has crafted something genuinely one of a kind." -Exeunt
