really liked it

The play which is largely credited with giving the english language the word Robot (from the czech robota) while lacking tin me, instead using more life like constructs, has the quintessential robot plot: Robots are created to eliminate work, robots rebel, the future of humanity/robot kind is decided by a few isolated characters. It's delightful, quirky, and possess some peculiar period details.
