Robot Boy, online, 7–8 April 2021, from £3 - Book now

Join Z-arts for an online screening of Theatre-Rites’ adaptation of The Incredible Tale of Robot Boy which has been developed using original film footage from stage performances in 2019.

Robot Boy is the product of a high-tech laboratory, and a team of top scientists who succeed in achieving their mission of creating a robot with a real brain – and in doing so, push the boundaries of scientific discovery. His world is the playground of the laboratory; it is where he belongs.

Robot Boy knows that his role is to support the scientists to do their important work but sometimes he longs to explore beyond this world, and this leads to his greatest discovery of all! The phenomenal place inside his own imagination.

A poetic story about humanity, responsibility, and life, this stage production features puppetry, interactive film, and performance. Prepare to be transported into a world of wonder.

This show is part of the brilliant programme of online activities on offer at Z-arts this Easter half-term so do check out our other family listings.
