Polly and Owen have nailed it. Successful in their careers and wildly in love, they feel ready to take on the world. Polly has recently been promoted, and spends most of her time working, so Owen presents her with a new gadget, 'Black Box', to help her relax. But when a mysterious new technology creeps into everyone's lives, the line between physical and digital rapidly dissipates, and Polly and Owen are forced to question whether their definitions of reality and freedom are the same.

A gripping two-hander, a piece of dystopian sci-fi in the manner of Black Mirror... takes our present-day unease about the intrusiveness of technology and pushes it a step into the future...

- The Guardian

Haunting and prescient... Smith invests this world with a rare intensity... there is a solid emotional base to the piece; it has a real authenticity, while the encroaching technological nightmare rings horribly true.
