My Robot at Frankston Arts Centre
"While the robotics and special effects in this play are extraordinary, what lies at its heart is a beautiful, poetic tale about acceptance." Subiaco Post
When Ophelia moves with her family to the seaside, she's not impressed. She doesn't like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in this town are pretty strange. While unpacking her room she discovers a mysterious box full of gadgets, parts and pieces, and a strange note that reads 'You. Make. Me.' Her curiosity gets the better of her and she spends all night assembling the objects into Olivetti, a robot with a typewriter chest and an alarm clock heart. Made up of pieces, but more than the sum of her parts.
Together Ophelia and Olivetti take on the local bully and make friends with a child so worried about allergies that he never leaves the house, all while trying to keep her dad from discovering that Olivetti is really a robot. But a bigger challenge is coming - can the pair save their friend and reunite him with his mother?
My Robot takes audiences of all ages on a rambunctious adventure filled with robot antics, laughter, daring rescues and bewildered parents, all told with the care and artistry synonymous with Barking Gecko Theatre's award winning shows. Children will discover that we're all just made from pieces, and that when we feel less than whole we can find - or make - a part that fits!
