H.G. WELLS & THE SPIDERS FROM MARS 

THE GESTATION! 

A work-in-progress of a new show, brought to you by The Mycelium: the people behind Cosmic Trigger, The Play! 

We need YOU to help steer this show to its next phase. ALL feedback will be welcomed! 

Geniuses collide when an invisible muse ‘Ziggy’ crash lands into the Edwardian living room reality of the ‘Godfather of Science Fiction’ HG Wells, inspiring him to write his greatest works: but can H.G. surrender to his muse and help provoke an evolutionary leap in the collective imagination?      

What can myth-making genius teach us about the urgent need to alter our cultural narrative.

COULD WE BE HEROES? 

A time-travelling one-man fusion of theatre, music-hall & Bowie-inspired songs, with mind-blowing digital sets.

Written by John Higgs (Author of William Blake Now, The Future Starts Here, Stranger Than We Can Imagine, Watling Street, The KLF)

Starring Oliver Senton (Slung Low, Mischief Theatre, Showstopper!)

Directed by Daisy Campbell (Cosmic Trigger, Pigspurt's Daughter, Anamnesis Now! )

Digitial scenery and animation by John Horabin (SkateDog Films)

Original music by Tim Arnold (The Soho Hobo, BBC London Radio album of the year). 

Co-produced by Kate Alderton for The Mycelium
