Sex! Robots! Theater! Those were the only three words I needed to see to be utterly intrigued by the Sex With Robots Festival being put on by Caps Lock Theatre in Long Island City. What exactly is being dramatized? “Nine playwrights offer a window into our humanity as their characters project their messy desires onto their mechanical lovers.” With titles like Girlfriend Repair by Micheline Auger, My Fantasy Sex Robot Came in the Mail Today by Danny Bowes, Taisetsu Na Hito by Leah Nanako Winkler and A Real Boy by Natalie Zutter, as well as “a robot sex song cycle by Nat Cassidy,” how could any nerd go wrong?
The Secret Theatre, 4402 23rd Street, Long Island City, Queens, 800-838-3006, 8 p.m., $18
