Riverside presents Barking Gecko Theatre’s
MY ROBOT
By Finegan Kruckemeyer

Suitable for Years K – 4

“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 is not impressed. She does not like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in the town are strange. She feels like she is missing a piece of herself. As she unpacks she finds a strange box full of parts with a curious note attached that reads ‘You. Make. Me.’

Ignoring her father’s warnings about the dangers of her ingenious inventions, she sets to work and builds herself a new robot friend, naming her Olivetti. Together they take on the local bully and start making new friends. However, are they smart and brave enough to take on a daring rescue at sea?

This story bursting with special robot tricks, laughter and bewildered parents will remind you that we are all made up of different parts, and that when we feel less than whole we can find, or make, a part that fits.
