by Karel Čapek, translated by Paul Selver

William Inge Memorial Theatre

An observation on the value (or lack thereof) of human labor.

In a future world, Rossum’s Universal Robots look just like humans, but are stronger, smarter and less expensive labor than humans. When the robots learn to feel the pain of working for no pay while humans live a life of leisure, a hostile robot rebellion begins.

Directed by Blair Lawrence Yates
Scenography by Leah Mazur
Dramaturgy by Rendi Renee Doran
Stage Management by Katie Sgroi
