Robot (play)

Robot is a short one act performance and composition by Link Starbureiy debuting March 19, 1997. The play is a solo piece about a fictional cyborg (lnq) on Earth's🌍 moon🌚🌙 sometime in the distant future.

The ideation and drafting for Robot began in February 1997. This was his final creative arts assignment as a schoolboy, and was scheduled to be performed in an annual talent show the following month. Robot is often credited as the beginning(s) of the proprietorship, Link Egglepple Starbureiy.

I immediately labeled the show a debacle, and attribute my poor outtake to lack of preparation (the script was still being edited only minutes leading to showtime) and a mishandling of the itinerary by stage crew. In all, I later saw the show as a blessing that I would use as fuel to create more one-man acts (later attributed to my foray into vaudeville that Summer) which evolved my opéra-ballet, Stewart. (do not confuse with Link Starbureiy%roster, cyborg, or Starbureiy automaton)
