From Tue 23 – Sat 27 Jan, Original Theatre’s wildly entertaining comedic interpretation of H.G. Well’s The Time Machine brings a triumphantly mischievous and delightfully inventive family-friendly production to The Lowry as part of its spring tour, having earned a slate of glowing reviews following a blistering London run.

Billed as play within a play, The Time Machine whisks audiences on a madcap theatrical journey as George, Amy and Michael prepare to debut their new and unabashedly tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the sci-fi masterpiece. Promising a fast-paced and fabulously chaotic night out for the ages, the (very) loose adaptation of the post-apocalyptic tale brings the latest hilarious adventure from the team behind The End of the Night, The Interview, Monogamy and Napoli Brooklyn.

Perfect for fans of H.G. Wells, pantomime enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys fresh, thrilling and high-energy drama-comedy, The Time Machine stars Starring Michael Dylan (Wilf), George Kemp (Jack Absolute Flies Again) and Amy Revelle (Offside) as a hare-brained trio who embark on an unforgettable cosmic journey packed with space-time irregularities, creative difference and classic Cher tunes.

Audiences have hailed the show as slick, hilarious and inventive, with great moments at every turn and something for all ages.

Nominated for Best Performance Ensemble at the Off West End Awards, The Time Machine has captivated critics, comedians and comedy-lovers alike across a whirlwind stint in the capital, garnering widespread acclaim from all corners of the theatre world.
