“I am a predator. I am a reaper. I am an avenger. I will end your world with the push of a button.”

Caught somewhere between a TED talk and a coming-of-age action thriller, this one-man play explores the rarely discussed world of drone warfare, and why the Iron Man films might just be the perfect metaphor.

In 2013, Iron Man 3 became the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, most popular with 18-33 year olds. This is the same demographic the UK government defines as military aged: the pilots and targets in drone warfare.

Owl is a Military Aged Male, but he’s also a geek. He’s not a soldier, but he does play a lot of video games, and that’s got him thinking. As he looks back over his childhood, examining the links between masculinity, technology and warfare, he finds himself asking the question: would he use a drone?

Between playing with action figures and wirelessly commanding the show via his PlayStation controller, Owl condenses a lifetime of technology into an hour of engaging performance that combines the fictional and factual, and takes a close look at remote killing.
