The live performance of “Trial Child: Nurture a Better Nature” is a 40 min unconventional dramedy written and performed by Scotty Wagner. Set in an imagined future where self-control is the single most important quality in human development, Trial Child, a robotic replica of a couple's would-be child, is the newest technology.

In this one person play, Wagner activates viewer imagination by performing characters that weave between the physical and imaginary. Immersed in the pastel world of Bailey Hikawa’s vintage-future living room, “Trial Child: Nurture a Better Nature,” is a tragicomic, Pinocchio-esque tale that addresses issues surrounding the cyborg identity and our growing personification of robotics in relation to gender, identity, technological absurdity and family politics.
