The Steampunk Mistress and The Time Machine

For our latest show on Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Closer Each Day Company are delighted to be joining forces with the spectacular theatre company and fellow Bristolian institution Show of Strength (Best of Bristol 2018: Theatre, Bristol 24/7).  This will be a show unlike any other we have done before, taking people on a steampunk journey around the ship in different locations – the audience itself controls the time machine!

HG Wells has left his wife to live with his young, scientifically-minded mistress. He’s writing his first novel and if it fails he is finished. But luckily it’s the age of steam and we can rely on a machine, can’t we?

Fusing the scandalous private life of HG Wells with his first novel and other his fevered imagination, this will be a riot of humour and drama and nifty outfits.

Do not miss this singular show, from two of Bristol’s most exciting and dynamic theatre companies.

Sunday 30th June – Thursday 4th July at 7.30pm, entrance to the ship from 6.30pm, bar on board, ends 9.30pm. Tickets £16/£12 conc., get them here.
