From August 9-19th biomedical research centre BioFab3D and immersive theatre company PlayReactive present a new play by local writer Rohan Byrne — RUR 2020. Staged in a real laboratory as part of National Science Week, this modern reimagining of Karel Čapek’s century-old masterpiece delves into the ethics of biofabrication – the manufacture of living tissues in the lab – and asks what price society is willing to pay in pursuit of a miracle cure.

When: 9–19 August (eight performances)
Where: BioFab3D, 1st Floor Clinical Sciences Building, 29 Regent Street, Fitzroy, VIC, 3065
