Hanna in ‘Universal Robots’

Sheen Center for Thought and Culture - 18 Bleecker St, New York, NY

Jun 3 - 26, 2016

Waterwell’s own Hanna Cheek is teaming back up with playwright Mac Rogers in Gideon Productions‘ Universal Robots. Their previous collaboration, Sovereign, won widespread acclaim, the New York Times calling Hanna’s performance “a magnetic star turn”. From their press materials:

UNIVERSAL ROBOTS offers an alternate history of the Twentieth Century, imagining the invention of the robot in 1921 Czechosolvakia and the shocking consequences right up to the present day. Part sci-fi thriller, part love story, part political allegory, UNIVERSAL ROBOTS is a fast-paced, 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.
