Arena Theatre Company presents
When 11-year-old Juniper May receives a petition signed by her entire class stating that she’s ‘the most hated person in the school’ her life is thrown into meltdown. Juniper stops eating, refuses to return to school and her parents become increasingly desperate. Finally, after exhausting all other avenues, her parents resort to the only thing they have left, a giant singing robot.
Based on a true story, Robot Song illustrates the profound, transformative nature of creativity that when combined with unconditional love, becomes an unstoppable force.
Robot Song shares an honest, intensely funny and often unconventional window into writer, director Jolyon James’ experience parenting a child on the autism spectrum. The show poses and attempts to answer the question: how do we support, foster and celebrate difference in our children in the face of an increasingly rigid and homogenised world?
“A must-see for young people growing up in a world where bullying is widespread but who need to understand that difference should be seen as an asset.” – Fiona Parker, ABC
