When Aleksander journeys to the hallowed city of Robotika he is struck by the technological marvels of the Steam Age. Box-headed industrials have liberated the townspeople from work, but in this lonely city Aleksander can find no one with whom to play. When he spies hardworking industrial Daisy secretly playing with his toys, he knows he has found a friend. But why is this friendship forbidden? As Alexander and Daisy escape deep into the heart of Robotika, they will soon discover the truth. Drop Bear Theatre tell this unsettling story of friendship and courage on stage for audiences aged 8+.
