Computer magnate Gill Bates has the greatest software company on earth, billions of dollars, and more power than he ever dreamed of…but there’s still something missing in his life: children. So he builds a little robot named Pinocchio to keep him company. But this mischievous little bundle of microchips has his own headful of ideas about how to enjoy life, including following two shadowy characters into worlds of increasing consumer frenzy. What follows is a wacky, charming 21st-century retelling of the 19th-century classic about what it takes to become a real human being, for both father and child.

A brand new one-woman show will take us through the dark days of chemotherapy, radiation and into the bright white light of transformation. Soldiers on opposite sides will sing together, despite the deepest of divisions. A community will hotly pursue its own sense of the American Dream. A columnist finds the courage to take on the questions that have no answers. And a pastor reveals the troubles that come with changing your mind.
