H GWells’ clas­sic to tour

The Galloway News - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

A team headed by ac­claimed pup­peteer Rick Conte will bring a time­less sci-fi clas­sic to the re­gion this month.

Sci­en­tific Ro­mance The­atre Com­pany will per­form H G Wells’ The Time Ma­chine in New Gal­loway, Dumfries and Mo­ni­aive.

The Arts Live show takes fam­ily au­di­ences on a thrill­ride to a fu­ture age where things are not as they seem.

Com­bin­ing pup­petry, melo­dra­matic live ac­tion and hand-painted pro­jec­tion, this fast-paced adap­ta­tion raises fas­ci­nat­ing ques­tions for in­quis­i­tive young minds.

Sev­enty years af­ter his death, this Wells’ clas­sic is widely re­garded as the first work of mod­ern sci­ence-fic­tion. It is as much about class, wealth dis­crep­ancy and man’s strug­gles as it is about time travel.

The show comes to the CatS­trand, New Gal­loway, on Fe­bru­ary 23 at 7.30pm; Lochside Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Dumfries, on Fe­bru­ary 24 at 7pm; and Glen­cairn Memo­rial In­sti­tute, Mo­ni­aive, on Fe­bru­ary 25 at 2pm.

Tick­ets from 01387 253383 or www. dgart­slive.org.uk. Suit­able for ages seven and up.
