My Robot Heart By Molly Naylor With Music From The Middle Ones Harrogate Theatre Saturday 25th May

Location
Molly Naylor presents a warm, beguiling and poignant storytelling show – with music from folky duo The Middle Ones. Inspired by experiments about love using robots in Japan, Molly offers the tale of three generations of one family and an impending wedding. Together they explore the meanings of love and fear, and the relationship between the two. Following it’s acclaimed Edinburgh Festival run in 2012, Molly takes her latest show on tour throughout 2013. 
Molly’s debut show, Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You, enjoyed considerable audience and critical acclaim at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe. This mix of biographical storytelling and spoken word recounting her life post 7/7 (Molly was in one of the bombed tube carriages) was subsequently adapted into a BBC Radio Four play and published as a graphic novel, as well as playing to sell-out audiences across the UK, Ireland and USA. 
Molly Naylor is an accomplished poet, playwright and theatre-maker from Cornwall. She has written for BBC Radio, The Independent and had plays performed at The Bush Theatre and Young Vic. The Middle Ones (Anna Knowles, Grace Denton) released their debut album in 2011 and regularly tour the UK, playing with the likes of Jeffrey Lewis. 
“Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing” – The Guardian

“This show sees theatre, live music and stand-up comedy in perfect harmony – never more one than the other – making it an ideal triptych of entertainment” – **** Metro

“Hearteningly vivid and acutely observed” – **** The Times

“A funny, touching, sad and life-affirming piece of theatre” – **** The Scotsman

“Naylor’s writing contains some lovely, wry observations” – **** The Telegraph
