R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)
The future of the world is looking bright as a team of 6 unlikely friends spark a new type of industrial revolution with a single invention: Rossum's Universal Robots.  No business can survive without these synthetic people as wage-free workers, housework is obsolete, and prices are falling through the floor.  But the coming Utopia could be threatened when the president's radical daughter shows up preaching Rights for Robots, and begging the men of RUR to give the Robots a soul.   Lucky for humanity the Robots have no emotion or original thought.  What could possibly go wrong?

The 1921 play that created the word "Robot"!

When a group of scientists and engineers create droves of robots to do all the tasks that humans don't want to do, they think they've solved the world's problems.  Until the robots decide they don't like doing any of that crap either!
A novel idea!  Czech playwright Karel Capek gave the world the idea of Robots.  He also added that word into the lexicon for all time.  This play introduced the world to the idea of man-made intelligent beings back in 1921.

Now in a new, cutting-edge translation, Commedia Beauregard presents the play that confronts the morality of humanity and its technology.  

This darkly comedic play gave birth to an entire genre of entertainment.  Come see where it all began.
