WORLD PREMIERE
BARKING GECKO THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS

MY ROBOT

BY FINEGAN KRUCKEMEYER
DIRECTED BY MATT EDGERTON

 

Mr. Smith yelled at the doctor,
“What have you done to my boy?
He’s not flesh and blood,
he’s aluminum alloy!”

-Tim Burton

If you could make your very own robot what would it be like? Would it beep or beatbox? Walk or roll? Make friends or make things blow up?

Get ready for an exciting new play starring a real robot onstage!

This sparky new show has been created with the help of the robot boffins at the University of Western Australia, our brilliant friends at Scitech and a zappy group of Little Gecko roboticists. The result is a very human tale about someone that isn’t.

Written by award winning children’s author Finegan Kruckemeyer this play will be the first of it’s kind in Western Australia to incorporate a robot performing alongside humans. Join us on a journey into the future of theatre and take a glimpse at the world the way it might be in just a few years time.

A brand new story about a human who makes a machine, and a machine who makes itself human. Anything could happen. And anything will!
