The Time Machine by H.G. Wells is one of the first novels to feature time travel and a classic of Science Fiction literature.
This world premiere play takes the situation in Wells’ story, a machine that can travel through time, and uses it to accentuate the complex web of agendas that affect even the most well-intentioned. Can this invention be a force for good? And what is the cost of it falling into the wrong hands? Brian Bell’s new play is a modern comedy of manners about four rivals and their attempts to use the machine for their own ends, whatever the cost.
"Writer and director Brian Bell is now primarily interested in the question of what power emanates from new technologies. And what the consequences are if they fall into the wrong hands. A serious topic, one should think, which the 39-year-old Texan presents in his version of "The Time Machine" packed into an over-the-top stage spectacle ... which was met with much applause from the enthusiastic audience."
