I’m utterly excited to announce that I’ll be appearing in Mac Rogers’ seminal, sci-fi play, UNIVERSAL ROBOTS, with Gideon Productions next month! Jordana Williams directs this highly anticipated remount at The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in Greenwich Village, June 3-26!
The Great War has just ended. The fledgling Republic of Czechoslovakia boasts a thriving artistic community. At the center of that community is Karel Capek, a celebrated playwright and a passionate advocate for all his newborn nation can achieve. But this brave new world arrives faster that Karel could have ever expected when a young woman walks into his life with a strange mannequin in a wheelchair… a mannequin that gets up and walks all by itself.
UNIVERSAL ROBOTS offers a compelling alternate history of the Twentieth Century, imagining the invention of the robot in 1921 Czechosolvakia and chronicling the shocking consequences of that invention right up to the present day.
Part science fiction thriller, part love story, part political allegory, UNIVERSAL ROBOTS is a fast-paced, riveting story of war, faith, art and technology that culminates, in the words of NYTheatre’s Martin Denton, in an “edge-of-your-seat finish equal to the best storytelling of stage and screen.”
