Join us on a thrilling journey to a future age where things are not as they seem. Has mankind created a social utopia free from need, or does something sinister lurk below? Combining exquisite puppetry, scintillating melodrama and a luxurious soundscape, this fast-paced adaptation whisks family audiences along through HG Wells' sci-fi classic. It is a tale of human folly, evolutionary change and social upheaval, suitable for all enquiring minds aged 8+. Will the hour fly by or will it seem like an eternity? Dare to discover the truth!
