Jennifer is a typical 22-year-old California girl who reengineers obsolete missile components for the U.S. Army from her bedroom. When she decides to meet her birth mother in China, she uses her technological genius and entrepreneurial drive to devise a new form of human contact. Rolin Jones’ irreverent “techno-comedy” chronicles one brilliant young woman’s quest to determine her heritage and face her fears with the help of a Mormon missionary, a pizza delivery guy, and her astounding A.I. creation named Jenny Chow. An Obie Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist, this play is all about the power — and limits — of technology to solve our problems.
The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services, Inc., New York.
This play is supported in part by a Babson-Olin-Wellesley Presidential Innovation Grant.
