The Test puts you in a dystopian not-so-distant future world, fighting to define itself. Will you join the revolutionaries or defend your social order? You (along with your fellow audience members) choose the plot you follow!

As part of an MSc dissertation project in the University of Glasgow's College of Social and Political Sciences, "The Test" is a forty minute play that offers audiences a chance to choose how they interact with a morally complicated world, by deciding what the protagonist will do. The show will be offered for five in-person presentations at the University of Glasgow, and for the month of July online on demand at www.the-test-play.co.uk. Before July, the same link can be used to reserve seats or request a reminder for the digital launch.

Audience choices will be collected (anonymously) as the study aims to analyse how people make choices differently in a group in person than they do alone online. However, this project is also artistically interested in what propels people to take inconvenient political action. As such, some themes in the play may be distressing. The artist would like to issue trigger warnings for the following: political repression, violence, revolution, blood, explosions, swearing. It's a bit heavy for 11 in the morning, but we take the venue reservations we can get!

Entry is free but does require a reservation. Audiences will be required to wear face masks for the duration of the performance, and will need to bring a mobile phone with access to the internet to use as voting devices.
