The production had been one week into its 5 week run at The London Library when it was cancelled due to the lockdown.
Creation Theatre has today announced it will be reimagining via Zoom its production The Time Machine – A Virtual Reality, to take audiences on a virtual psychedelic journey through the wormhole, somersaulting timelines where thousands of parallel universes will challenge everything they thought they knew.
This new way of experiencing the show will have limited audience capacity for each show and will run for four weeks with a total of 40 performances from 27th May to 21st June.
HG Well’s story has been adapted by award-winning playwright Jonathan Holloway (BBC Audio Drama Awards, Edinburgh Fringe First Awards, Prix Italia) and directed by Natasha Rickman (Artistic Associate Jermyn Street, Director Twelfth Night Rose Bankside, Assistant Director for the RSC and The Globe).
Talking about the news Natasha Rickman said: “Now our time travellers can take our audience anywhere in time and space in the blink of an eye. Our production deals with multiple universes – and in this new version each audience member will have their own journey through the show – including an invitation to choose their own ending. Characters will be playing out scenes at exactly the same time but in different digital rooms, with different actors and varying designs – and which path the audience sees will depend on which universes they find themselves thrown into. That is, if they make it through the show without turning into a squirrel or an astronaut.”
The cast for the production includes: Clare Humphrey, Rhodri Lewis, Leda Douglas, Funlola Olufunwa ,PK Taylor, Sarah Edwardson and Graeme Rose.
