Alan Ayckbourn takes the Pygmalion myth on a wild and comic ride into a future where television soaps are performed by robot actors (actoids). On the way, he explores what makes us human as opposed to purely logical machines. His answers are, triumphantly and riotously , Comedy and Love, as a robot actress discovers a weakness for both and learns how to stand on her own two feet through the love of a good man and the power of the well-aimed custard pie.

As “Westworld” collides with “My Fair Lady”, this is a highly entertaining  celebration of romance and a master-class in comedy from the funniest playwright in the business, as well as proving that Love means never having to say you’re Android.
