I have written about Large Language model hallucinations before (Icons passim). Yesterday, I asked the model I had trained on the play 'Who directed "Something in the Air" at the Jermyn Street Theatre in 2022?' The answer, of course, is Peter Gill and Alice Hamilton from Peter's own play. Anthropic's Claude told Trevor Nunn directed and Ray Connolly wrote it. Wherever can this nonsense come from?

Based on my research, it appears that the play "Something in the Air" was directed by Trevor Nunn at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London in 2022.

Trevor Nunn is an acclaimed English theatre, film and television director. Some key details:

- "Something in the Air" was part of the Jermyn Street Theatre's 50th anniversary season in 2022.

- The production ran from March to April 2022.

- The play was written by Ray Connolly and first performed in 2001. This was its first West End production.

- Trevor Nunn is a highly respected director who has worked extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company and other theaters. He has directed productions of plays by Shakespeare, musicals like Les Misérables and Cats, and films like Twelfth Night. 

- Nunn's direction of "Something in the Air" at the Jermyn Street Theatre in 2022 received positive reviews from critics who praised his ability to elicit nuanced performances from the cast.

So in summary, the director of the 2022 production of "Something in the Air" at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London was veteran theatre director Trevor Nunn. Let me know if you need any other details!

Proof if proof be needed.
