The Turk by Michael Sabbaton

31st Jan 2019

7:30pm at Copper Auditorium
Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions)

A cabin aboard ‘The Otis’. Night.

Surrounded by well-travelled packing crates and empty wine bottles, a drunken and dying Johann Nepomuk Maelzel revisits scenes from his life, losses and adventures with the amazing, chess playing automaton known as, The Turk.

Fuelled with alcohol and yellow fevered madness, Maelzel and The Turk explore the sacrifice of the showman, the promise of the engineer and the passion of the dreamer against a philosophical backdrop of life, love, cognition and existence.

A compelling dark drama with humour, music and song too!
