  • Overview
    Comic Potential by Alan Ayckbourn is a romantic sci-fi comedy. It is set in a TV studio in the foreseeable future, when low-cost androids have largely replaced actors. The play is about the ability to laugh and the ability to fall in love. They are both illogical and therefore differentiate humans from androids. The comedy also explores the Pygmalion syndrome and competing desires for autonomy and certainty.
