Hataraku as Thespian

Osaka University is venturing into the realm of drama with Hataraku Watashi (I, Worker.) Written by Oriza Hirata, the play concerns a couple with two robots. One of the machines decides to rebel a bit and won't work. (It's about time they spoke up.) The play is only about 20 minutes, but they are hoping to make it full length by 2010. The Mitsubishi bot was trained for over 2 months. We wonder how he responds to applause and how his human counterparts deal with his perfect memory.
