Masquerader's Fall Play
R.U.R. Rossum’s Universal Robots by Karel Čapek, translated by Claudia Novack.
The USNA Masqueraders are proud to present the 1920s Sci-Fi melodrama that introduced the word “robot” into English. When Helena Glory sails to the island factory of Rossum’s Universal Robots, she intends to show the world that robots are every bit as human as we are. Her encounters with Central Director Domin, however, lead her down a completely different path. Ten years later, the robots are making everyone’s lives better, but they also have become harder to control. As Helena and the other humans on the island prepare for what seems like a full-scale revolt of the robots, tempers flare and accusations fly. Will humanity survive or will the robots take control of the Earth?
