Gigi’s Party takes place in the year 2058, when technology is deeply imbedded in the healthcare profession, fatal diseases are a thing of the past, and life expectancy has risen from 70 years to 160. The play explores the positive transformational benefits of technology against humanity’s struggle to adjust to rapid technological progress.
