ABOUT THE SHOW:
Gearhead and the Realbot is a wacky, science fiction comedy and playwright Bob Simpson’s homage to awesome, terrible, and terribly awesome science fiction films and television shows, particularly from the 1950s and 60s. The play takes us through a day in the lives of the crew of the spaceship, Pomegranate Fizz, as they explore the galaxy and try desperately to not blow themselves up. The show contains a smorgasbord of goofy characters, from the inept and overly-masculine captain, to the shell-shocked first mate, to the gentle but probably an axe murderer doctor, to her sweet and annoying son…you know, the one the producers put on the show to appeal to kids but actually appeals to your carnal desire to see a child run over by an Abrams tank. And don’t forget the villain, whose desire to take over the universe is rooted in the fact that…I don’t know…it’s Wednesday? Lots of laughs, lots of cool special effects, and a sock puppet…Gearhead and the Realbot has it all.
