LORAS PLAYERS: 2014 To 2015 Season of Plays
Our 104th Season
 
R. U. R. by Czech playwright Karel Capek
November 7 & 8 at 7:30 and November 9 at 2:00, 2014
St. Joseph Auditorium, Hoffmann Hall; Loras College
Admission: Loras Affiliated = Free and General Admission = $12
 
R.U.R. premiered in 1921 introducing the word “robot” to the English language and science fiction.
Rossum’s Universal Robots factory manufactures millions of androids with no souls, desires or feelings; But, The Humanitarian League wants to improve their condition. Thus, the formula for their creation is secretly changed, and 10 years later the robots are in full revolt; leading both the robots and humankind to the brink of annihilation. R.U.R.’s relevance is timely and current as we may already be on the brink of dealing with the questions the play poses.

What could you create in 24 hours? On Friday teams of students gather in the theatre and are given 24 hours to create an original, short, one act play.

It is always an evening of outstanding entertainment that gives us a glimpse into the creative impulse.
