Spilikin – A Love Story (Pipeline Theatre)

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?

Pipeline Theatre's Spillikin will make you laugh, cry, and ponder big questions of love, death, and technology.

“An astonishing piece of theatre that allows a box of blinking lights and whirring gears to move us fallible humans to tears ... a production to remember.” ***** The Edinburgh Guide

Recommended for ages 14+
