The Time Machine
2018: In this age of uncertainty, where the shadows of tyranny, intolerance and war darken the path into tomorrow, how much time do we have left? If civilisation falls today, what will become of us?
In Rebecca Vaughan and Elton Townend Jones’ new and radical interpretation of the HG Wells classic, a Victorian time traveller transcends across the ages from 1900 to our own far future – from the fall of man to the end of the world – discovering the fate of our endeavours and uncovering our darkest fears. Can we change the future? Or has the end already begun?
A philosophical journey, a nightmare adventure, a cautionary tale – this is the story of us all.
Presented by Dyad Productions, creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Christmas Gothic, I, Elizabeth and Austen’s Women.
Venue: Studio Theatre
"H.G. Wells’s much-loved 1895 yarn about a time-travelling Victorian scientist — a Dr Who for grown-ups — is dramatised in a one-man show, the story being told with terrific commitment by Stephen Cunningham... ideas spit of the narrative like sparks from a welder’s torch" ★★★★ Quentin Letts, Daily Mail (read the full review)
"A captivating and clever adaptation of the original source material, written to be naturally close to the original yet organically branching out...Cunningham gives an energetic performance filled with manic energy." ★★★★ British Theatre Guide (read the full review)
