“A truly endearing and wonderful production”
The Uncanny Valley
Wilson is trapped. The city leaves him lost between the lines. Until the moment he discover Her. Eyes light up, connections are made and deep inside a dormant chest a battery heart begins to beat.
Developed at Camden People’s Theatre, The Uncanny Valley uses powerful movement and absurd humour to tell the truly electric love story of man meets robot.
A funny and theatrical celebration of sci-fi fantasy that highlights what it is that makes us all human.
The Uncanny Valley by @Superboltplays at @edfringe was a truly lovely piece of theatre... Heartwarmingly funny and oddly beautiful...— Nikki Kalkman (@NikkiKalkman) August 19, 2013
