Can Androids Pray is a touching look at the difficult questions we will all have to face as the end of our lives draws near. It’s a game of coming to terms with the limited shelf life our brittle frames have, and what the meaning of all of this bickering and going to work and fighting to keep the lights on can mean for us. It’s about the connections we have with ourselves and the world around us, and is a lovely contemplative work on the things we often forget in the constant demands of everyday existing.
