A world is grappling with a new invention set to change its reality forever…electricity. The Terrific Electric uses a theatre of moving images, absurd humour and vivid tableaux to evoke the shock and wonder of the dawning electrical era.

An isolated household falls under the spell of a charismatic man of science who takes up residence to pursue his experiments. Through this surreal and fantastical world of innovation, BOiLEROOM investigates technology and our relationship with it across generations, from utopian visions of the future to mobile phones, cyberspace and the cutting edge of mechanised medicine.
