FRED On The Rocks Theatre Company
About This Show
After two hundred years of keeping his inventor’s comatose widow alive, Fred the robot decides they both could use a change. Taking a leap of faith, he packs up their home in Phoenix and the odd couple relocate to The Clam—a once luxurious retirement space station orbiting Pluto. There, The Clam’s in-house alien band The Kunzigs awaken something special in Fred’s ancient companion.
About the Artist
After their enormously popular production of The White Stag Quadrilogy, iconic theatre company On the Rocks returns to Dixon Place with this brand-new science-fiction odyssey. Co-writers Dakota Rose and Christopher Ford’s notorious nostalgia glistens in their comedic dialogue and mythic aesthetic.
This Dixon Place commission is made possible, in part, with public funds from NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov Andrew Cuomo & the NY State Legislature, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and private funds from the Jerome Foundation.
