Set in a not-too-distant future, this play tells the story of Amelia Summerland, a terminally ill woman who undergoes an experimental medical procedure in which her brain is scanned and simulated in a robotic copy of herself. Is the result really Amelia? Or something else entirely? As the country wrestles with that question on a political and spiritual level, Amelia and her husband wrestle with it on a much more personal level. “The Summerland Project” by Rob Merritt uses current, existing technology as a launchpad for a story about where the line truly is between life and death, and asks what it is that makes us human.
