R.U.R. Summary

Karel Capek's classic R.U.R. originated the word "robot,” and for nearly a hundred years, the play has been considered a classic, translated into every major language on the face of the planet. The plot is centered on a factory that makes artificial beings used in the service of humans. While at first these “robots” seem content with their function as domestic servants, a hostile rebellion soon arises that threatens the very existence of the human race. Lee Eric Shackleford’s adaptation brings the play's characters, language, and themes into a modern vernacular while remaining as faithful as possible to Capek's intentions and vision.
