U-R-U by Julia Lederer
First Daughter, Helen Spectacular, arrives at the world’s largest robot-producing start-up with a plan to free the robots and grant them human rights. She quickly becomes embroiled in both a love triangle and a secret science experiment that might be what’s causing the robots to revolt. Absurdly comic and existentially chilling, U-R-U examines the societal obsession with progress at all costs and the decreasing worth of humanity in this increasingly artificial world. A comedy about the inevitable robot take-over and the value of humanity (if it still exists).
A new play inspired by Karel Capek's R.U.R., perfect for colleges & high schools!
