THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION

Ended 15 Oct 2008 after 11 months

In 1920, a young Idaho farmer named Philo dreams of a device that projects images transmitted through the air. Meanwhile, across the country, a Russian immigrant has clawed his way out of the shtetl to become the head of RCA (Radio Corporation of America). He dreams of spreading information to the masses using pictures. Who will get the credit for inventing television?

Closed 15 Oct 2008

It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy?

The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, the new play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Des McAnuff. Tony nominee Hank Azaria and newcomer Jimmi Simpson head the cast of this electrifying new drama. Book your tickets today  - and stay tuned.
