Michaelmas Week 8
“The war burst like a hurricane.”
She stared before her at unspeakable things.
On a broken-down train under London, a man crippled by the Great War meets a woman whose dreams of future cataclysm are slowly killing her. This play brings to life the short story of the same name by H. G. Wells, which explored the coldly absurd horror of global war and mutually assured destruction decades before the Cold War.
