The seventh best musical robot group in the world is making a new musical, to be performed to all robots everywhere and it’s going to completely explain what humans are – in song. Everything will be fine,
they just need some clear answers. That rhyme. Meanwhile 10-year old Jennifer Dempsey – MASSIVE robot fan – is on a mission of her own, one that might just change the course of robot- human relations forever!

Brought to you by John McCarthy (the writer of City, 2021), The Everyman and Graffiti Theatre Company, who have been providing theatre for young audiences and arts experiences for children in Cork for almost 40 years, this big-hearted – and funny! –story about loss, friendship and hope features three humanoid robots, one quite robotic human and beautiful original songs throughout.
