“It is a poor robot that blames its programming.”
Your toaster is lovesick, your iPod refuses to play Nickleback and your garage door is secretly plotting against you. Welcome to i-ROBOT Theatre, where every machine has a personality and the streets swarm with androids, cyborgs, A.I.s and robots!
Jonathan, an up-and-coming roboticist, lives the perfect suburban life with his household robots and beautiful Robo-Wife. But when the rising threat of the electronic Infanta virus invades their home, the delicate balance of human and machine is thrust into chaos.
i-ROBOT Theatre explores a near-future world populated with robots that work, think… and maybe even feel. What happens when the technology we designed to serve us starts demanding its freedom?
“i-ROBOT Theatre is un-frickin-believeable! Brilliant humour, profoundly moving, cool tech, deep philosophy. See it!” – Audience member
“It has all the elements that made you love robot stories in the first place.” – Applause Meter
