Award winning poet embarks on exploration of space and autism in new show


Fresh off Edinburgh Fringe, Casualty’s Edalia Day presents the show ‘Spectacular Spacebots’ to the Shoebox Theatre as well as a free drama workshop on the 21st of September.

As part of the Artist Residency programme at the Shoebox, ‘Spectacular Spacebots’ is a new family show about autism and space adventures. Join Zee, robot adventurer, as they battle space wizards, gunslingers and a quizzical hippopotamus, asking what does it mean to be human. And how far do you have to go to be accepted as one…

“As well as supporting theatre makers to develop new work, our residency programme means that the local community can see new theatre and take part in workshops for subsidised prices. We are able to offer tickets for Spectacular Spacebots for only £3 and this also includes the opportunity for 7-12-year olds to take part in a free theatre workshop led by Edalia,” said Hannah Marquez, Producer at the Shoebox Theatre. 

“We are so lucky to have such an abundance of talent working with the Shoebox and are delighted to be able to welcome back professional theatre maker Edalia.”

As well as recently starring in BBC’s Casualty, Swindon born Edalia, will have just finished a full run at Edinburgh Fringe with their 5-star rated ‘Too Pretty to Punch’.

‘Spectacular Spacebots’ is suitable for all the family and will be performed at the Shoebox on Saturday, 21st September at 1pm, with a free theatre workshop for ages 7-12 at 11am. Find out more and book tickets at
