THE TIME MA­CHINE

Where Sydney - - Where Now Live On Stage -

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.
