  • Edinburgh Fringe

For this, he was sentenced to life in prison whilst Amelia was raised by her uncle. Now she is on trial: a zealous environmentalist arguing that her continued survival threatens humanitys future. You have been summoned for jury duty. How will you vote? Innocent or guilty? Human or experiment? Chaos or safety? Kindness or cleverness? This show has two possible endings, decided by audience vote.
