Ray Bradbury’s THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, John Altman and Zoe Tapper
Derek Jacobi and Hayley Atwell lead an all-star cast in The Martian Chronicles, a thrilling new dramatisation, reimagining Ray Bradbury’s timeless fable of doomed Martian colonisation.
‘This is the story of Mars and the people who lived there. It’s always fractious and untidy, it’s frequently tragic and on occasion both horrifying and beautiful. But there’s a constant bass note of wonder to each of these stories, a sense of something truly alien. That’s the spirit of Mars, and of the original book. And it’s alive and well in this remarkable achievement.’ – Alasdair Stuart, Sci-Fi Bulletin
‘Derek Jacobi turns in a subtle, nuanced but incredibly powerful performance as Captain Wilder.’– Jane Anderson, The Radio Times
‘Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles is a work of surreal beauty and this production does a good job in condensing matters down to a coherent single drama… an admirable rendition of a classic.’ Starburst Magazine
‘Boasting an impressive cast, pacy direction and phenomenally atmospheric sound design, it’s certainly a polished production.’– Dave Golder, SFX Magazine
‘Derek Jacobi’s central performance as the honourable space Captain is involving and there’s admirable support from a passionate and emotional Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) as Spender.’ – Ian McArdell, Cult Box
