The Time Machine Tickets

This spring, The London Library is teaming up with Creation Theatre, the company that brought us Dracula, to host an exciting new theatre production

Review this show


As The Time Machine celebrates its 125th anniversary, delve into the secret corners of The London Library and travel through time to experience HG Wells’ prescient sci-fi classic as never before.

In Creation Theatre’s new production, writer Jonathan Holloway reimagines the novel to create a world in which time has fragmented, the present is endlessly shifting and the future is strange and uncertain. This surreal, psychedelic adventure draws on cutting edge research from the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities to challenge our perceptions and raise important questions about time, society and the nature of human existence.

Innovative audio visual design will transform The London Library’s extraordinary building - where Wells was a member for over 50 years - to create a unique theatrical experience, with audience groups being led by their very own Time Traveller. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be provoked on this journey into the unknown.

The performance will take place in groups of up to 20, moving around various rooms in:

The London Library
14 St James’s Square, London SW1Y 4LG

Age Recommendation: 12+

Critic reviews

Disastrously dull and calamitously wasteful

· A Younger Theatre

Natasha Rickman's direction maintains a jaunty intensity

· Londonist

There is lots to interest here

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Eerily timely but incoherent site-specific adaptation of HG Wells' novella

· The Stage

A muddled, static story greatly enlivened by powerful performances

· Everything Theatre

Overall, The Time Machine experience is very engaging
