Men beware women and both beware the future
Bob Boland’s amusing comedy is about husband and wife film makers putting together a script about a world over which women rule and men have been dispatched to supporting roles only. The wife is an ardent feminist, the husband agnostic to say the least on the issue as befits his situation. They are aided, abetted and hindered by two women from the Female Empowerment movement who think they know it all.
Best of all, however, is the support the couple get from Google personified by two robotic young persons playing computer icons that give advice, information and generally cause trouble.
Kaleem Khan is an impressive Googleman and Annabelle Rich as Googlewoman does a neat Hilary Clinton impersonation.
At the end the audience are left to work out for themselves on the evidence of the play whether women triumph, but the answer is obvious from what we have seen – it is Google that will take over the world.
