Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention: TV's Secret History Revealed
Leave it to one of TV's best writers, Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and The Newsroom, to write a crackling stage drama about the race to invent television. Filled with Sorkin's snappy dialogue and prime-time excitement, The Farnsworth Invention pits the individual entrepreneur against a corporate titan. In 1929, Mormon farm boy Philo T. Farnsworth works on an idea he developed in high school to broadcast sound and images across the airwaves to a TV set. Meanwhile, across the country, media mogul David Sarnoff of RCA races to do the same. See this rousing Burlington Players production of this David-versus-Goliath tale at The Park Playhouse.
