The Farnsworth Invention
May 7, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$25
The race to invent television was as engrossing and dramatic a story as any that has aired on TV. It’s told in the Town Players of New Canaan production of Aaron Sorkin’s play “The Farnsworth Invention,” running three weekends from May 6 to May 21. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: ruthless media mogul David Sarnoff, or self-taught farm boy Philo Farnsworth? In a highly innovative production, TPNC uses superb actors and a “pop-crackle” pace to tell this amazing story. Directed by Julie Petrak, produced by Tom Butterworth, production design by Robert Doran.
$25, $20 for students and seniors.
