Tomorrow when the world ends, one man will survive alone in his apartment with nothing but his Amazon Alexa for company. Big Ben versus The Void is a new play about what it means to have humanity in times of crisis.

Big Ben versus The Void follows the story a lonely man named Ben, and his digital home assistant, Alexa, during the days following a climate apocalypse of which Ben is the only survivor. Combining theatrical storytelling, puppetry and technology, Big Ben versus The Void interrogates identity and what it means to reconnect in an individualised world. Ultimately the play asks us: what does it mean to be human?
