Yorkshire Festival of Story Presents: The Incredible Tale of Robot Boy
Fantasic For Families

A magical sci-fi retelling of Pinochio performed by a cast of 7 from Theatre-Rites — a field leader in the creation of experimental theatre for children.

In the most extraordinary high-tech laboratory, a team of the world’s top scientists are attempting the impossible.

Their mission is to create a robot with a real brain. Their aim is to push the boundaries of scientific discovery.

They succeed. And Robot Boy is born.

His world is the playground of the laboratory; it is where he belongs. Robot Boy knows the Scientists have an important job to do and he is there to help them, but sometimes he longs to explore beyond this world.  Just as we all yearn to visit unique and extraordinary places, for Robot Boy the most phenomenal place of all is inside his own imagination.

This film, adapted from footage of the 2019 Theatre-Rites and Schauspielhaus Bochum stage production, takes us on a journey of curiosity and wonder – a poetic story about humanity, responsibility and life.

Recommended for children aged 8 and older. This event will be followed by a live Q & A with Theatre Rites so children can ask questions.

After the show you’ll receive a free short tutorial inspired by The Incredible Tale of Robot Boy. This will teach children to create a model of a brain using plasticine or clay.
