Past Productions The Steampunk Mistress and The Time Machine

The Steampunk Mistress and The Time Machine

We’re joining forces with Closer Each Day Company to take you on a Steampunk journey through time and space.

THE STEAMPUNK MISTRESS AND THE TIME MACHINE is on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain 30 June – 4 July at 7.30 with the opportunity to explore the ship from 6.30pm.

HG Wells has left his wife to live with his young, scientifically-minded mistress. He’s writing his first novel and if it fails he’s finished. And his personal life is just as fantastic as his fiction – his mistress’s mother is sharing their rented rooms in Sevenoaks. As the pressure increases from all sides, the world of science fiction becomes an attractive alternative to reality. So attractive it’s just possible that Wells can no longer tell the difference.

Closer Each Day Company are the acclaimed creators of CLOSER EACH DAY: THE IMPROVISED SOAP OPERA. Now in its 8th year, it’s the longest running improvised story in the world AND the only serialised theatre show in the UK. Bristol 24/7 awarded SHOW OF STRENGTH ‘Best of Bristol 2018: Theatre’ and Creative Bath awarded Best Live Performance (2017) – catch our 5* THEATRE WALKS in both cities this summer and through into the autumn.


Sunday 30 June – Thursday 4 July at 7.30pm
Tickets £16/£12 concessions, includes entrance to ship from 6.30pm.
Bar on board, ends 9.30pm
