The initials stand for Rossum's Universal Robots. This Czech play, first produced in 1921, introduced the word robot into the world lexicon. The Rossum factory robots are so human that a well-meaning beauty travels to R.U.R.'s island headquarters to liberate them. She ends up fomenting more revolution than the human race can handle. With a cast featuring Alan Bergmann, John Birney, Brian Finney, Milton James, Laua Kellogg, Ann Marie Lee, Lorna Raver, Stefan Rudnicki, John Schuck, and Kristoffer Tabori.
