Strawdog Theatre Company kicks off their 21st season with Karel Čapek's science fiction drama 'R.U.R. (Rossum's Universa Robots),' directed by Strawdog Artistic Associate Shade Murray. Set in the 1920s at the island factory of Rossum's Universal Robots, 'R.U.R.' follows a team of scientists who have created the model to factory-produce the world's first robotic workforce. When an idealistic young woman arrives on a quest to free the 'souls' of the robots (and discovers there is no such thing), she manipulates the scientists to biologically remedy that fact. Soon after these 'improved' and extremely humanlike robots have been shipped all over the world, the inevitable robot revolution explodes, leaving questions about the survival of humanity and what actually makes a human.

Tanya O'Debra's 1940's radio detective spoof Radio Star is the ideal comedic one-woman show. Short and sweet, bawdy and hilarious, this performance reminds us why we must always appreciate the off-off theater scene. Set deep in the mystery of New York City, the audience watches (well, listens) as O'Debra narrates the episode of 'The Case of the Long-Distance Lover'.
