In the far future, new technologies may allow us to experience our memories past from a new perspective and projected before us. “Read-Only Memory” explores how a dystopian society might find a use for this technology as a form of punishment – forcing those of us who do not conform into reliving their most painful memories.

Bringing Sci-Fi to the stage, Jamiel Laurence’s new work draws inspiration from the “DUNE” novels by sci-fi author Frank Herbert. The work will feature exciting new designs by Rhiannon Matthews and be accompanied by a newly commissioned composition from Scotland-based composer Sonia Killmann.
