R.U.R. & The Insect Play
by Karel Capek

Plays & Players Skinner Studio
1714 Delancey Place
Philadelphia, PA 19103

P&P with Once More Theatre presents Karel Capek’s R.U.R. and The Insect Play, adapted by Jimmy Guckin. Written in the 1920’s, Capek, along with his brother Josef, explores the threat to humanity of technology and war. In R.U.R., humans live lives of leisure while robots do all of our work. That is, until the robots become self aware and rose up against their masters. This is the work which first introduced the word robot. In The Insect Play, a traveller drunkenly falls asleep, only to wake up in a dream-like world inhabited by different bugs, who act surprisingly like human. Tickets available at
