Theatres around the country are preparing to welcome a somewhat different cast member to their stages – a humanoid robot.

‘Spillikin’ features a ‘RoboThespian’ who talks, displays facial expressions, blinks, moves its hands, turns its head, and has even been described as “affectionate”.

The play, starring Judy Norman, tells a story about a robot maker who builds a robot to keep his wife company after he dies.

Cornwall-based Pipeline Theatre , which has worked with robotics company Engineered Arts for the project, is touring across England.
