Lovebot finds us meeting two beautiful astronauts charged with repopulating the world with humans. Unfortunately, they are a lesbian and a gay man, and even though they know repopulation is important, they just can't bring themselves to go through with it. Luckily, their successors thought this might be an issue--so they created a lovebot who was able to present as male to the male astronaut, and female to the female astronaut, who is able to help them.
This show is one of two featuring robots in the Festival, but I assure you they are nothing like each other. This is one of the most fun scripts in the festival, but still has that Gadfly heart and mind we always look for.
This cast of Liv Anderson, Shannon Leach, Pedro Juan Fonseca, and John Gebretatose is dynamite, and we can't wait to see them bring both bots and humans to life. Lovebot is in Set B of the Festival, which means is shows June 14th, 16th, 20th, and 22nd at Nimbus Theatre. Tickets are available here on a per night or whole festival basis. See you at the show!
