Pegasus PlayLab: It’s a Small World (or The Robot Play)

A recovering drug addict and a robot are reminded of what it means to be human. Be part of creating the next great play at the second annual UCF Pegasus PlayLab, a festival dedicated to developing plays by emerging playwrights!

Anne, a recovering drug addict, is back in contact with her childhood best friend after he abandons his robot son/coffeemaker at Disney World and asks her to send it back to him. Instead, this contact leads to a long road trip from Orlando, Florida to Canandaigua, New York, where the duo meet other people and small kitchen appliances who are just as lost as they are. Through their journey, they are reminded of what it means to be human and, as E. E. Cummings put it, that “love is the every only god.”

It’s A Small World (or The Robot Play) received its initial staged reading at Activate Midwest New Play Festival. The play was developed, in part, at Flint Repertory Theatre’s New Play Festival.
