R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) by Karel Čapek

Presented by Classical Theatre Company at The DeLuxe Theater, Houston TX

Jan 12 - 30 2022
R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) by Karel Čapek

A unique and rarely produced play, R.U.R. will be making its local premiere on the 101st anniversary of its debut.

The second of the trio of local professional premieres for CTC’s 13th season, will be R.U.R. by Karel Čapek. Subtitled Rossum’s Universal Robots, this Czech play, which celebrated its 100th anniversary on January 25, 2022, explores the very nature of life as the characters in the play have created robots – indeed, the play is credited with inventing the word “robot” – to perform their labor for them. The story follows the human characters and their relationship with their fabricated servants as it changes over the course of several decades.
