New York City
Mike Iveson makes his debut as a playwright with Sorry Robot, a satirical, sentimental, song-studded spaz opera. Four performers and a piano create a haunting world where robots long to feel the same things that their embarrassing and sort-of-pathetic human masters feel, at a hotel that doubles as a software development facility in the dystopian state of Florida in the near future.
Beloved downtown performer and 2013 Ethyl Eichelberger Award winner Mike Iveson leads the charge with nine original perverse pop songs which provide a window into the hidden hankerings of robots and humans alike -and which just may convert every human in the room into a metallic automaton.
No robots were harmed in the making of this piece.
