"Can your best friend really be a robot? And can robots really adapt to think and feel like humans? The story in Rob Drummond’s play, Uncanny Valley, makes one girl’s attachment to her techno-chum into a nail-biting race to re-programme her robot before the local mayor has it destroyed – at the same time, however, Drummond’s interaction with young audiences encourages them to explore, and voice, their own ideas about our relationship with technology and ongoing advances in artificial intelligence. Issue-based theatre is rarely as witty, thought-provoking or as open to audience reactions as this piece for children and young people"
CATS AWARDS 2016
I'm seriously overexcited to hear that Uncanny Valley has won the Best Production for Children and Young People at the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS). It was a complicated and hugely interesting collaborative project to work on, where each member of the team had something well thought out and skilful to bring to the table, and the end result is a show which none of us could have realised on our own.
