It’s the '70s. Sally likes Debbie Harry, Raymond likes making robots; they’re an unlikely pair. Flash forward to 2030. After a long, childless and sometimes bumpy marriage, Sally has Alzheimers. Before Raymond died he created a robot, uploaded with his memories, to keep her company. It’s the ultimate love letter from beyond the grave: an endlessly patient memory-jogger and singing partner, it gives order to her confusion, and becomes 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 5* sell-out Edinburgh show from Pipeline Theatre featuring a state-of-the-art robot as a full cast member. After the show there will be a Q&A session with a chance to meet the company, and to get up close and personal with the robot, who can even answer your questions himself.
