About The Machine Stops at Theatre Works

Be transported by this world premier of a new adaptation of the brilliant novella The Machine Stops by EM Forster (A Room with a View).

In this chilling tale of a futuristic information-orientated society all of humanity live subterranean, connected by a global instant-messaging system and grown fearful of first-hand experience.

A rhapsody of sound and light brought to life by two virtuosic performers, THE MACHINE STOPS is more prescient than 1984 and Brave New World combined. Starring Jane Montgomery Griffiths, be taken on another phenomenal theatrical experience where technology has become the ultimate controlling force.
