Are you dying for technology?
Location & Map
Pippie finds herself in the ward from which patients don’t usually return.
A curious character, she torments the staff with her klepto tendencies while they argue about potential treatments, performing outrageous numbers of tests and scans on body parts we weren’t even aware of.
A crack team of care bots attend to her every need. They even provide the entertainment. How convenient!
The Doc will use any technological means to cure the next big disease that she is increasingly obsessed with diagnosing.
Nursie, the last of the human carers, struggles with the technological takeover and determines what Pippie really needs is not another robot.
Pippie has her own se ecrets though. In this medical wonderland of technological advancement, is she really sick or is she just… dying?
Roomba Nation plays at the Old 505 Theatre in Newtown from 4-21 July.
Conceived by Alison Bennett and Directed by Felicity Nicol, it stars Bennett as Pippie, Nick O’Regan as Nursie and Kate Walder as Doc.
David Kirkpatrick is Hurrah Hurrah’s multi-disciplinary artist and creator of the ‘bots’ with writing associate Moreblessing Maturure.
