Casting has been announced for the UK premiere of The Time Machine, a fast-paced and wise-cracking retelling of the world-famous novel by H.G. Wells.
Michael Dylan (The Stage Award 2022 for Wilf), Dave Hearn (founding member of the Olivier Award-winning Mischief Theatre, The Play That Goes Wrong) and Amy Revelle (Offside) will star in the play written by Steven Canny and John Nicholson and based on a story created with Mark Shanahan.
Billed as an adaptation like no other. When the world of science fiction and science fact collide extraordinary and mind-boggling things can happen. Audiences can expect the most surprising and unforeseen consequences as they go on a roller coaster journey through time. Warning: may contain show tunes. The production is suitable for ages 10+
Directed by Orla O’Loughlin, The Time Machine is from the team behind the smash hit comedy The Hound of the Baskervilles and the award-winning Original Theatre who delivered Agatha Christie’s The Mirror Crack’d and Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art.
The creative also team includes Fred Meller (Designer), Colin Grenfell (Lighting Designer) and Greg Clarke (Sound Designer). The play is produced by Original Theatre and New Wolsey Theatre.
