Thursday, June 22, join the Actors’ Gang for our presentation of a stage reading of Karel Čapek’s revolutionary ‘R.U.R.’ The play that introduced the word ‘robot’ to the English language, R.U.R. is a frighteningly prescient dystopian thriller. From obedient assistants to architects of extinction, witness the rebellion that sparks humanity’s demise.
In the world of R.U.R. artificial beings born from synthetic flesh evolve beyond their creators’ control. This gripping play from 1920 centers on a robot uprising that leads to a cataclysmic fight for survival. In this all too real imagined future, the seeds of revolution are sown in the heart of a factory and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.
Admission is free. Performance begins at 8 pm.
