ABOUT HEDDATRON, written by Elizabeth Meriwether
A pregnant housewife, Jane, is abducted by robots and taken to the rainforest and forced to perform Hedda Gabler by her robot captors. Meanwhile, her family back home in Michigan trying to find her, and Henrik Ibsen is in Norway attempting to write Hedda Gabler, as Strindberg taunts him. A hilarious and savage journey to freedom.

"That's my robot heart beating itself to death inside my rock hard torso-tron."


RICK GORDON / HANS ROBOT - male, early 30's - early 40's, weak but not dumb, normal in a frustrating way. Jane's husband. ROBOT: tall, glowing, muscular, articulate.
CUBBY GORDON / BILLY ROBOT - male, mid 20's - late 30's, figuratively or literally mustachioed, wears rings. Rick's brother. ROBOT: junky, visible rust, stop-start way of speaking.
MRS. IBSEN / AUNT JULIE-BOT - female, late 30's - early 50's, a pistol-whip, not to be reckoned with. ROBOT: wears a big tacky hat.
NUGGET GORDON - female, ten years old, freakishly brilliant. Jane's daughter
FILM STUDENT - male, just barely 20, in over his head. Pimples.
AUGUST STRINDBERG - male, early 30's - late 40's, sexy, sexual, if Sweden had cowboys.
