Written by Steven Canny & John Nicholson
Adapted from the novel by HG Wells
Directed by Orla O’Loughlin

A hilarious retelling of the epic and world-famous novel by HG Wells.

Fast-paced, wise-cracking, this is an adaptation like no other. When the world of science fiction and science fact collide extraordinary and mind-boggling things can happen.

Starring Michael Dylan (Wilf), Dave Hearn (founding member of the Olivier Award-winning Mischief Theatre, The Goes Wrong Show) and Amy Revelle (Offside).

Expect the most surprising and unforeseen consequences as we go on a journey through time. A comedy that travels to the end of the earth's life in order to reflect on our own.

Join us for a hilarious roller-coaster ride of a show and a brilliant new take on H.G. Wells classic science fiction novella.

Strap yourself in as you’re taken on a fast and funny journey with plenty of twists and turns along the way, just make sure to note down the time and date on your way in… you know… just in case you have to find your way back there at some point…

From the award-winning Original Theatre who brought you the smash-hit comedy The Hound of the Baskervilles, Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art, and the acclaimed Birdsong.

Warning: may contain Cher tunes.
