Too entirely horrible for the purposes of legitmate fiction
Too entirely horrible for the purposes of legitimate fiction was produced as part of A Hole In The Ground, a “serial collaboration” facilitated by Inter Arts Matrix in spring+summer 2023.
Preliminary Rehearsal videos feature Roshan James and Shalaka Jadhav.
The song, dialogue, doctor’s note and casting calls were written with ChatGPT. As of November 2023, I am unsure if that was an intelligent use of available tools or if it was simply lazy. I guess time will tell.
