No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by an intelligence greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own.

Brought to life by award-winning actor and writer Ross Ericson, and following on from his popular solo show 'Moby Dick', comes a new adaptation of HG Wells classic story 

From the team behind the Edfringe sell-out show 'The Unknown Soldier' and the Offie nominated 'Casualties'.


★★★★★ GlamAdelaide on Moby Dick "There are many story telling shows in this year’s [Adelaide] Fringe, but this has to be one of the best." 

★★★★★ British Theatre Guide on Gratiano "...a further testament to Ericson's growing magnificence as a modern playwright and performer." 

★★★★★ Three Weeks on The Unknown Soldier "Powered by a magnificent solo performance from Ross Ericson"
