The Time Machine
Presented by Dyad Productions.
From the creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Female Gothic and Austen’s Women.
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?
Rebecca Vaughan presents Elton Townend Jones’ radical new interpretation of the HG Wells classic, in which 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.
Can we change the future? Or has the end already begun?
