R.U.R. is the classic Czech sci-fi play by Karel apek that coined the term "robots." Translated into English by David Wyllie and re-conceived for a modern audience by Mary Parker, our version explores the same themes of humanity, love, the value of work, and the dangers of oppression as the original, while re-imagining the more problematic aspects of a play that is almost 100 years old and very much of its time.
On a remote, secure island, Rossum's Universal Robots churns out a cheap, disposable workforce. Rossum's robots are strong, intelligent, and versatile, and more definitely not human. What could go wrong?
