Like any well-made play, this one starts with a booming voice from the sky - though this booming voice arrives in the form of a hardcover copy of Hedda Gabler torpedoing into the lap of a terribly bored Michigan housewife. Suddenly, Jane Gordon finds herself captured by robots and whisked off to the Ecuadorian rainforest to perform the titular role in a robo-version of Henrik Ibsen's famous drama. Jane's ten-year-old daughter, Nugget, with the aid of her milquetoast father, an eager documentary filmmaker and her small arms dealing uncle must rescue her mother from the mechanical grip of her robot captors - whether she wants to be saved or not. Heddatron takes us on a hi(tech)storical journey through our trigger happy-TV-4G-machine-obsessed world to ask that great question, "What does it  mean to be human?" Salvage Vanguard Theatre, with the help of the University of Texas' tech-savvy IEEE Robotics & Automation Society, is ecstatic to offer a look at what happens when "real" robots and ever realer humans battle it out on the stage in the Austin premiere of Elizabeth Meriwether's genre-defying head-trip Heddatron.

Feauturing: Amy Downing, Robert Pierson, Cyndi Williams, Jennymarie Jemison, Jude Hickey, Scott Daigle, Jarrett King, Matt Hislope, and Kyle Lagunas

Design by: Lisa Laratta, Natalie George, Jessica Gilzow, Buzz Moran, and Lee Webster
