4 Stars from FemaleArts.com 'Expect one-liner gags and skilfully characterised comedic rhetoric. Look out for a twist at the end. I can recommend this highly.' Luisa Guerreiro.
Planet London Says: '“Freakoid” is one of the most inventive pieces of theatre I have seen in a very long time and richly deserves to be seen by a far wider audience.' Laura Alexander.
What's Peen Seen Says: 'Emma Adams is a fine comic actress, composer, musician and singer in the great British tradition of Beryl Reid, Grenfell herself, and perhaps, more pertinently, Hermione Gingold. Like them, she has a warm and winning stage presence...' Chris O'Shaughnessy.
Written and performed by Emma Adams. Directed by Sarah Applewhite.
Somewhere out there in the future a woman called Emma and a sentient vacuum cleaner called Hooverdroid have fallen in love. This future-queer love affair brings joy, heartache, hard-drive overload and internment… Against all the odds a biobot-hoover-baby is born.

Musings on eugenics, personhood, memory and the beauty of otherness.
And a plea for love and understanding between all in our LGBT-QWERTY world.
“Be prepared for utter silliness, but silliness with intelligence and the power to move emotionally.”
