Flat Earth Presents "Rossum's Universal Robots"

Flat Earth Theatre will present Karel Čapek's classic science fiction play, "Rossum's Universal Robots", at the Arsenal Center for the Arts January 23rd through the 31st:

This is what the Flat Earth Theatre has to say:

Thanks to scientific breakthrough, almost all labor on earth is done by cheap, efficient robots made by the Rossum's Universal Robot company. When a young idealist, seeking to liberate the robots, visits the factory to incite a revolt, she is greeted by the eccentric managers who assure her that robots are, indeed, soulless. However, this is called into question when some of the more advanced robots become displeased with their subjugated status and hatch a plan to destroy their human creators. When all is said and done, the lone survivor is left to ponder his own humanity and the wisdom of playing god. Written in 1920, R.U.R. was the first literary work to use the word 'robot' to describe artificial people.

Performances will be held January, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th and 31st at 8 PM with a matin?e presented Sunday, January 25th at 2 PM. Additionally, there will be a "Pay-What-You-Can" preview held Thursday January 22nd at 8 PM. All shows are to be performed in the Arsenal Center for the Arts Black Box Theater located at 321 Arsenal Street in Watertown (Directions). Tickets are priced at $15 general admission, $10 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling (617)[masked] to reserve.

Please RSVP with meetup no later than 3 pm Saturday the 31st.
