Back to Methuselah: As Far as Thought Can Reach


One of the first works of science fiction ever put on stage hurtles humanity 25,000 years into the future, with GBS' celebrated wit and a touch of satire. The conclusion of our multi-year cycle of productions of Shaw's visionary landmark, Back to Methuselah, will be accompanied by readings of the first two parts and a number of special events!
