R.U.R. is Karel Capek's classic Czech sci-fi play that coined the term "robots." Translated into English by David Wyllie and re-conceived for a modern audience by Mary Parker, Theatre @ First's version explores the same themes of humanity, love, the value of work and the dangers of oppression as the original, while re-imagining the more problematic aspects of a play that's simultaneously a century old and very much of its time. On a remote, secure island, Rossum's Universal Robots churns out a cheap, disposable workforce. Rossum's robots are strong, intelligent, and versatile and more definitely not human.
