The First Men in the Moon (work-in-progress)

Mark Jardine

Embark on a hilarious cosmic adventure with a penniless playwright, and a potty professor in this uproarious adaptation of HG Wells’ classic, where moon creatures and typewriters collide!

Meet Bedford, an aspiring playwright on the edge of bankruptcy, and Professor Cavor, a scientific genius on the verge of a discovery that will either change or (just as likely) destroy the world.

In the sleepy English countryside of 1919, the unlikely duo set off in a metal sphere to boldly go where no one-man show has gone before. Will they find life? Probably, but not as we know it.

Written and performed by Mark Jardine, this work in progress adaptation of The First Men in the Moon is a comic and thrillingly dramatic ride through a Sci-Fi classic from the pen of HG Wells.

Mark Jardine is a South West based theatre maker whose previous solo performances include How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won the FA Cup which received excellent reviews at the Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh Festival:
