Written in 1920, this wild, expressionistic journey into genetic engineering on a mass scale accurately predicted a mechanized world of people without emotions and individual rights. Mad scientists, explosive special effects, and an eerie original score by Patrick Kelley ’09 promise to make Rossum’s Universal Robots a nightmare you can’t escape when the curtain comes down. Directed by Michael O’Neill.
