Looking Backward: 2000-1887



The Department of Drama & Theatre Arts Presents

 Looking Backward

 by Edward Bellamy. Adapted by Graeme Rose. Devised by Graeme Rose and the Cast.

     After consulting a mesmerist for his insomnia, Julian wakens from a 113 year-long slumber to find himself in the 21st Century. His new hosts guide him through the changed world. Adapted from Edward Bellamy’s time-travelling 1887 novel, this group-devised piece invites us to reconcile Bellamy’s utopian vision – complete with technological advancements, universal income, shopping centres, credit cards and equal rights – with the known realities of the past Century.
