Writer and director, Elton Townend-Jones brings The Time Machine, a new Dyad Productions show to the Edinburgh Fringe, with a modern relevance brought to bear upon H.G Wells’s classic novella, The Time Machine. In this insightful interview, he is joined by producer Rebecca Vaughan and performer Stephen Cunningham.
“In this age of uncertainty, where shadows of tyranny, intolerance and war darken human progress, how much time do we have left? If civilisation fell today, what would become of us? In Rebecca Vaughan and Elton Townend Jones’s reinvention of the HG Wells classic, a Victorian explorer travels through time into tomorrow, discovering the fate of our endeavours, uncovering our darkest fears. From the fall of man to the end of the world, this is the story of us all. Previous works from Dyad include: Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Female Gothic, Dalloway, Jane Eyre.”
