R.U.R. Humans vs Robots 
by Karel Čapek

M. A. Capstone Project Showing
Directed by Abel Cornejo

Theater Arts Center, Studio B100

A spellbinding adventure takes Helena to a remote space station to conquer her innermost fears. There she encounters a sinister fabrication company whose dark secrets propel the world into an epic battle of technology vs. humans. Beyond imagination at the time, the word “robot” was invented in this 1920 stage play. Not in a film nor a book, but this remarkable theatre production predicted the future of “mechanized” humans. A stunning allegory on the exploitation of workers, life and money. Told through a series of fast-paced scenes, Čapek’s suspenseful plot explores the fate of humankind in a world where robots fulfill every mortal need and desire. See the play that launched the future of robotic sci-fi thrillers!
