The seventh best robot musical group in the world – well, they were fifth, but it went to their heads – are making a NEW musical. It’s going to be performed to robots everywhere and it’s going to explain what Humans are. Everything will be fine; they just need some answers.

Meanwhile, 10-year-old Jennifer Dempsey – MASSIVE robot fan – is on a mission of her own, one that might just change the course of robot-human relations forever!

This is a big-hearted – and funny! – story about loss, friendship and hope featuring three humanoid robots, one quite robotic human and a bunch of catchy original songs.

Brought to you by playwright John McCarthy and Graffiti Theatre Company, who have been providing theatre for young audiences in Cork for almost 40 years. Produced in collaboration with The Everyman.

Suitable for children 8+ and their adults.

Funded by Arts Council of Ireland Touring of Work Scheme. Made possible by funding from RTÉ Toy Show Appeal managed by Community Foundation Ireland, the Arts Council & Cork City Arts Office.

*Performances for schools will take place from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 October. For further information and school booking enquiries, contact Graffiti Theatre Company: [email protected] or 021 439 7111.

“It was very funny. It was also sad. We loved the song ‘Friendship Vacancy’. We liked the dancing, the shaking their booty part and the girl trying to do the floss and the farting” – Sarah, aged 10
