A scientist creates a new race of intelligent beings but quickly ends up in a race to save them from extinction. Save the Robots is based on Karel Capeks 1920 ground breaking play R.U.R. and the astounding lyrics of Clark Render. It showcases the music of Hagatha, one of C.B.G.B.s featured bands in the late 1980s. The title refers to the East Village night club of the 1980s and the culture and scene it nurtured. Set in the future on a remote planet, the story is one of a reluctant hero who tries to save a race of beings from people who do not understand them and attempt to eradicate them.
Runtime: 1:30 with one intermission.
