Time-travel classic challenges the future

Posted on 19/03/2018 by Helga Pearson

H G Well’s classic time-travelling tale is brought right up-to-date with a highly acclaimed piece of solo theatre that will be performed at The Theatre on Friday 6 April.

The Time Machine is being toured by Dyad Productions who present a captivating and clever adaptation of the Victorian novella, written to be close to the original yet immediately palatable to a modern theatre audience.

The production follows Dyad's recent touring successes of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Dalloway, Female Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe and Austen;’s Women.

Well’s original concerns for the decline and degeneration of society in 1895 are still highly relevant today and brought to the forefront of the production. At one level it is sci-fi escapism and at another level it is a strong warning to humanity, suggesting a future that partly lies in our hands.

Stephen Cunningham takes on the role of the time-traveller himself – less the classical hero and more of an ‘aspergian supergenius’. There are also clear yet subtle modern-day allusions towards Dr Who, a theme also echoed in the Tardis-like sounds of the Time Machine's operation.

Tickets from £8 to £21 are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service on this website.
