It’s the ultimate love letter from beyond the grave: an endlessly patient memory-jogger and singing partner, giving order to her confusion, and becoming a new partner in the oddest of odd-couple romances. But as Sally’s mind fades, will the robot be more of a comfort or a threat?
Spillikin will make you laugh, cry, and ponder big questions of love, death, and technology. Prepare to have your heart broken by this five star sell-out Edinburgh show from Pipeline Theatre featuring a state-of-the-art robot as a full cast member.
Afterwards there’s a Q&A session: meet the company, and get up close and personal with the robot, who can even answer your questions himself.
