Sanguine Theatre Company presents a new sci-fi drama about a missing woman and the android built in her image that's supposed to find her. More…
In 2013 Jessica vanished. Now her closest friends are reconstructing her with cutting-edge technology to try and track her down. They prime the android with memories from Jessica's past, but it's clear that their stories don't add up.
