Synopsis

Ten stories—some famous, some lesser-known—created by Ray Bradbury, the world's greatest writer of fantasy and science fiction, have been adapted to be played by a flexible cast utilizing only a few simple props and costume pieces. The stories use the device of the character "The Illustrated Man," one of Bradbury's most familiar creations, as a narrator. Among the selections that are dramatized are such classic Bradbury tales as The Fog Horn: a monster rises out of the "deeps" in answer to the plaintive call of the foghorn; The Murderer: a man confesses to killing his telephone; There Was an Old Woman: an elderly woman dies and confronts the mortician, threatening to haunt him for 200 years if she isn't given back her body; and The Anthem Sprinters: an Irishman creates a game out of who can exit the cinema fastest after the final scene. The play was created as a one-man play but may be easily adapted to be performed by as many as 14 actors.

Media Reviews

"[The] stories are fantastic, apocryphal and optimistic … More than a collection of entertaining tales, it is an insightful social commentary." -Daily Sundial
