THE TIME MACHINE
Written by Sydney playwright Frank Gauntlett, “The Time Machine” is a one-man play based on the novella by HG Wells, the story that heralded a century of science fiction. The play recounts the experiences of the scientist known only as ‘Time Traveller’, who has spent years perfecting a device which allows him to journey forward in time. When the scientist tests his device, he travels to 802,701 AD and finds humanity seemingly living in balance with nature, but at some cost to itself. With its mix of science fiction and fantasy, this cautionary tale remains a vibrant examination of human kind’s place in the bigger scheme of things. Starring Mark Lee in the title role, this is a spectacle not to be missed.
