Event description

Description

Crown College’s 2019 Social Fiction Conference is proud to present R.U.R. Humans vs. Robots. A spell-binding adventure takes Helena to a remote space station to conquer her innermost fears. There, she encounters a sinister fabrication company whose dark secrets behind their creations propel the world into an epic battle of technology vs. humans. Beyond imagination at the time, the word “robot” was first used in this 1920 stage play. Not in a film, or in a book, this remarkable theatre production predicted the future of “mechanized” humans. A stunning allegory about the exploitation of workers, life, and money. Told through a series of fast-paced scenes, Karel Čapek’s suspenseful plot explores the fate of humankind in a world where robots fulfill every mortal need and desire. See the play that launched the future of robotic sci-fi thrillers!
