A JOYFUL STORY USING TECHNOLOGY, MUSIC & HUMOUR TO TACKLE THEMES OF DIFFERENCE + INCLUSION WITH A POIGNANT ANTI-BULLYING MESSAGE

When eleven-year-old Juniper May receives a petition signed by her entire class stating that she is ‘the most hated person in the school’ her life is thrown into a complete meltdown. After exhausting all other avenues her parents resort to the only thing they have left, a giant singing robot.
Based on the writer’s experience of raising a child on the autism spectrum, Robot Song is a new musical that illustrates
the profound, transformative nature of creativity; that when combined with unconditional love, becomes an unstoppable force of self-acceptance.
Robot Song uses cutting-edge digital technology integrated with live performance and songs to create a hilarious
and fascinating show.
