Characters: 15 male, 3 female
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, the new play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing.
