Till Death Do Us Guilty was created at as part of Anvil Hack III, hosted at Goldsmiths in April 2017.

It's a performance where the actors are the audience, who receive the lines one by one through their phones via text message and voice calls. The actors do not know what roles they have and the characters emerge as more and more lines are being read out.

The lines are written in advance and timed to go out at the right time so that in spite of the fact that none of the 'actors' have a clue what's going on, it results in an (almost) cohesive performance! There is no intervention from the creators at the time of the performance, it's all automatic from the point where the players text in.

Technically speaking it makes use of the twilio API using a python backend.
