Vibrant new comedy (very) loosely inspired by HG Wells’ genre-defining novel comes to Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre

28th February 2024

Original Theatre presents Steven Canny and John Nicholson’s The Time Machine – A Comedy. Following the play’s previously announced forthcoming London première at Park Theatre, it will play at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford Tue 5 – Sat 9 March.

The Time Machine – A Comedy, will star Michael Dylan (Wilf) and Amy Revelle (Offside), who appeared in the 2023 Spring tour and Park Theatre runs. They will be joined by George Kemp (Jack Absolute Flies Again).

H G Wells’ comic deadly serious masterpiece will never be the same again as this hapless highly skilled group of actors embark on a journey of a lifetime!  Will George persuade the others to stick to the script he’s worked so hard on? Will Michael be able to explain time travel without the help of excessive props? Will Amy get to sing her Cher tribute? And ultimately… will they be able to defeat the space time paradox – or at least get through the second half?

From the team behind the smash-hit comedy The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Time Machine – A Comedy is directed by Orla O’Loughlin and designed by Fred Meller, with lighting design by Colin Grenfell and Sound Design by Greg Clarke.

Warning: may contain Cher tunes. Age guidance: 10+.
