H.G. Wells: The Science of Fiction
"The creative mind...sees the world as one great workshop, and the present as no more than material for the future, for the thing that is yet destined to be."
-- H.G. Wells, 1866-1946
Combining elements of Science, English and Theatre, H.G. Wells: The Science of Fiction follows the exploits of a young Wells as he investigates questions of scientific morality, the future of mankind, and his place in a wildly imaginative universe of possibilities. As Wells writes his fantastic tales of tomorrow, the stories come to life in a world populated by time travelers, invisible men, and Martians!
After the performance, students will participate in workshops directly related to the stories and themes explored by H.G. Wells. What makes a Martian death-ray work? Is invisibility really possible? Can we bend the laws of space and time to travel millions of years into the future? All these questions, and more, are examined through both up-to-the-minute scientific observations, theatrical applications, and the farthest reaches of the creative imagination!
