The Farnsworth Invention
December 1, 2017, 8:00pm - December 10, 2017, 10:30pm
It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century? The ruthless media mogul? Or the self-taught Idaho farm boy? The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, by Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, The Newsroom, and The Social Network.
