Don’t miss PJC Drama’s first-ever virtual production Nov. 12-15 on Zoom!
Rossum’s Universal Robots, or RUR, is a 1920 science fiction play by the Czech writer Karel Čapek. It premiered on 25 January 1921 and introduced the word “robot” to the English language and science fiction.
The play begins in a factory that makes artificial people, called robotic (robots), from synthetic organic matter. They are living creatures of fake flesh and blood rather than machinery. They may be mistaken for humans and can think for themselves. They seem happy to work for humans at first, but a robot rebellion leads to the extinction of the human race. What will become of Earth after people?
