“Universal Robots” A Science-Fiction Play | SF
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The Great War has just ended. The fledgling Republic of Czechoslovakia, under its first elected President, boasts a thriving artistic and intellectual community. At the center of that community is the celebrated playwright Karel Capek, a passionate advocate for all his newborn nation can achieve. But the brave new world arrives faster than Karel could have ever expected when a young woman walks into his life with a strange mannequin in a wheelchair… a mannequin that gets up and moves all by itself.
Universal Robots offers a compelling, alternate history of the Twentieth Century, imagining the invention of the robot in 1921 and chronicling the shocking consequences of that invention right up to the present day.
Join Quantum Dragon Theatre, the SF Bay Area’s first and foremost science-fiction/fantasy theatre company, for this West Coast premiere production of award-winning playwright Mac Rogers’ Universal Robots, inspired by the classic work of science fiction theatre R.U.R (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek. Directed by QDT Artistic Director Sam Tillis, the production will open at the Phoenix Theatre— located at 414 Mason Street, San Francisco— on Friday, June 29th at 8pm.
The performance will last for 2.5 hours, including one intermission. There are no extremely loud noises, smoke effects, or strobe lights in the production, but Universal Robots has some adult themes and is not recommended for children under the age of 13.
