In 2011, the day after Bin Laden is killed, a computer engineer named Alberto reveals to an actress/waitress who he meets in a bar that he's been in hiding in Boca Raton since getting a call the night before 9/11 telling him not to go into work at the towers the next day; the two begin an affair complicated by the presence of ALBA, the artificial intelligence which Alberto took from his company and which may soon be becoming sentient. Meanwhile, back in New York, Alejandro, a playwright, is working on his first screenplay, a science fiction piece about The Singularity, and having trouble dealing with executive meddling. 

 

The 2019 NYC Fringe Festival production was directed by Aliza Shane, and the cast featured Anthony Irizarry, Samantha Simone*, Adam Patterson*, Roberto Alexander, Sarah Kaufman, Amir Royale*, Shakeerah-Imani, Dante Jayce, and Alexandra Cremer* as the voice of ALBA.

"Perhaps most significant for the play's ultimate thesis are the individual blindspots, the unquestioned comfort zones and beliefs, of a set of characters who are diverse in race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and body type. Nothing Human is tightly plotted, and its numerous moving parts come together satisfyingly.
