R.U.R. Cabaret is a musical entertainment based on the 1921 play by Czech playwright, Karel Capek. R.U.R. is an abbreviation for “Rossum’s Universal Robots.” Capek is credited with coining the term “robot” and introducing it to the English language. In Capek’s original concept, robots were constructed of synthetic organic materials and would be what we now call androids, rather than the clanky, metallic mechanical men of 1950s science fiction.

 

In a dystopian future, robots are created by humans to do the work of humans and labor for them indefinitely. However, the robots have been created too well and begin to think independently. They start to rebel against their human masters. What will that portend for the future of the human race?

Book and lyrics by Kai cofer. music and direction by Larry evans.


Ages: 12 to Adult.
