Sir Oliver Lodge is a strange and forgotten figure from the Edwardian era: an Establishment scientist, the unacknowledged inventor of the wireless before Marconi, a dabbler in psychic phenomena, the friend of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Albert Einstein. He was also a tragic figure: destined to spend his life searching desperately for a way to communicate, using seances, with his son, Raymond, killed on the Western Front in 1915. Sir Oliver believed he had cracked the thin veil that separates two worlds.
Many of those seances were transcribed and form the heart of this drama written by Adrian Bean and David Hendy. Owen Teale plays Sir Oliver Lodge, Amanda Root plays his wife Mary Lodge.
