Great play that introduced the word 'robot' into English looks to a future in which all workers are automatons. Their revolt when they acquire souls (i.e., when they gain the ability to hate) and the resulting catastrophe make for a powerful and deeply moving theatrical experience. 'It is murderous social satire, done in terms of the most hair-raising melodrama.'--Alexander Woolcott. 'As awe-inspiring as anything we have ever seen in the theatre.'--Heywood Broun. Paul Selver translation.
