Forward Flux Productions presents Robot Songs, a darkly comic fable about the joys and dangers of searching for meaning in the things we create.
When an inquisitive small-town reporter investigates the experiments of a mad scientist just outside the city limits, he makes an alarming discovery: a robot designed to bring about the end of the human race. However, the robot is more interested in composing and performing pop music than doing its creator's bidding. Robot Songs is a comedic exploration of humanity's relationship with technology as well as with itself, and the future of our evolution.
The cast includes James Allerdyce, Aaron Gaines, Laura Kaldis, David Kenner, Carly Menkin, Ryan Nicolls, Spencer Plachy, J Reese, Sarah Ripper, Kellie Spill, and Rebecca Tucker. The production team includes CJ Dockery (scenic, costumes, prop design), Joseph Naftal (lighting design), Abby Walsh (assistant art design), and Wesley Frugé (producer).

The company strives to reinvent the theatre experience by blending the traditional form with unconventional ideas.
