This Thursday, Nov 1st from 7-8 pm, the Sci Fi Lab will present an original adaptation of Karel Čapek’s “RUR: Rossum’s Universal Robots.” Written in 1920 and produced a year later, “RUR” introduced the word ‘robot’ to the English language. Since then, it has inspired everything from the replicants in “Blade Runner” to the Bot planet in “Futurama.” We hope you’ll tune in and experience a piece of science fiction history!
