Enjoy great professional theatre at the Forest's premier outdoor venue.  After last year's hugely popular "Pride and Prejudice", this anarchic and brilliant theatre company return...

 

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's...

 

...And fewer would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that H G Wells' science fiction classic would be performed live by just four actors with intelligences lesser than average...

 

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful new adaptation as they use musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm to recreate deadly heat-rays, giant fighting-machines, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale.  The chances of success?  A million to one...
