Future, The

Future, The

There's a Cambridge researcher called aubrey de Grey who contends that the first human being to live to 1,000 years old has already been born. But playwright andrew Harrison goes further, and imagines a drug that makes us, in effect, immortal. Such are the Utopian visions now current in the field of biochemis-try, and Harrison rightly identifies the existential questions they raise (what constitutes our humanity? what are we here for?) as the stuff of drama. But that's not to say that 'The Future' is very dramatic. Harrison assiduously airs the arguments, but theatrically, he gives them (unlike his characters) a strictly limited life. The scenario itself is schematic. We drop in on four dinner parties, each separated by four-year intervals, as the play charts the increasing torpor of six friends' lives under the influence of the anti-ageing wonder-drug Senexate.
