Rossum's Universal Robots
Adapted for radio play by Lee Shackleford from the original stage play by Karel Capek
Director: Lewis Magruder
Run Time: 95 minutes
9:00 AM - 11:00 PMFri
The 1920 Czech play that gave us the word ‘robot’ is updated and adapted as a modern audio drama. Well-meaning scientists and entrepreneurs sell the world on the idea of keeping robot slaves, little dreaming that the robots are becoming increasingly aware of themselves--and beginning to yearn for freedom. When the inevitable revolution breaks out, the creators of ‘Rossum’s Universal Robots’ become that last line of defense for the entire human race.
