it was amazing
Read in March, 2012

This play captivated me, I have had a fascination of the obsession Man has with the "self." I hope I to have the pleasure of seeing this one day.
The comparison between Young and Old Rossum was especially interesting to me, it seemed Old Rossum recognized God by shaking his fist and saying "I can create just like you, I have made a flawless 'human being,' unlike you!" Young Rossum denied God completely by just exploiting Rossum's Robots, and not recognizing that what he is doing is "Godlike."
RUR expresses that humans are not meant to be the most efficient, but that it is more human to have imperfections, complexity, and desire for beauty.
