Universal Robots by Mac Rogers
Directed by Sam TiIllis

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 cons...equences of that invention right up to the present day.

The show's run-time is 2 hours 30 minutes, including one ten-minute intermission. There are no extremely loud noises, smoke effects, or strobe lights in our production, but Universal Robots has some adult themes and is not recommended for children under the age of 13.

All tickets are pay-what-you-want, with a suggested donation of $25. Purchasing a ticket for $50 or more entitles you to a choice of reserved front-and-center seats in the house. (Please note, these seats will be released to other ticket holders 10 minutes before the start time of the show, and choice among these reserved seats is on a first come, first served basis.)
