The truth is out there. Join us for a spooky evening of extra-terrestrial dissection that promises to be out of this world. Professor Sue Black, the UK’s leading forensic scientist, will conduct an historically minded mock-autopsy on a Wellsian alien.This special performance will showcase the impact of the literary imagination on scientific endeavour and the scientific imagination on literary practice, using both Wells’s fiction and speculative essays about future human evolution. Featuring Eddie Small as Herbert Unwells.
