When Ophelia moves with her family to the seaside, she’s not impressed. She doesn’t like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in this town are pretty strange. While unpacking her room she discovers a mysterious box full of gadgets, parts and pieces, and a strange note that reads ‘You. Make. Me.’ Her curiosity gets the better of her and she spends all night assembling the objects into Olivetti, a robot with a typewriter chest and an alarm clock heart. Made up of pieces, but more than the sum of her parts.

A conversation about the nexus between science and art led to Barking Gecko Theatre's Artistic Director Matt Edgerton reaching out to internationally respected playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer. My Robot reminds us all that we are all just made from pieces and when it feels like something is missing we can find, or make, a new piece that fits just right.
