‘Evolve managed to perfectly tread the line of comedy and tragedy, seamlessly blending the two… a story that perhaps resonates more with our own contemporary culture than we would like it to and makes us reflect on our own society’s “evolution”.’ Katy Eloise, Nouse
Evolve is a musical set in 1977, on the cusp of the Digital Revolution and the time of the burgeoning popular computing industry. It tells of Robert, his wife Sarah, and his best friend and brother-in-law Eric. The fourth party in this relationship is Robert’s invention. Which will he fix first – his revolutionary computer program or his crumbling family?
