R.U.R. is the play that first coined the word ‘robot.’ Written in 1921 and set sometime after the year 2000, it depicts a secluded island factory that produces the most valued product around the world: artificial people. The human inhabitants of the island, employees of Rossum’s Universal Robots, are there to keep the factory running and maintain the secret of the robots’ creation. But something is beginning to change about the robots – something the humans aren’t quite able to control...

 

R.U.R. performed July 13th-15th, 2018, at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory in NYC.
