Regarded as one of Frank Gauntlett’s finest pieces, The Time Machine 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. From the producer of the critically-acclaimed productions of Freud’s Last Session and Blonde Poison, this new production sees the incomparable Mark Lee (Gallipoli, A Place To Call Home) reprise the role of Time Traveller. He follows in the footsteps of a stellar line of Australian actors who have also played the role – Rod Taylor and Guy Pearce. Gareth Boylan directs this irresistible classic. Travel 800,000 years into an amazing future where horror and wonder mingle in a spectacle not to be missed.
