This October, Shasta College is excited to bring Aaron Sorkin’s fast-paced and witty historical drama, The Farnsworth Invention, to the stage! The play centers on the parallel stories of Philo Farnsworth, a self-trained farm boy turned scientist and inventor, and David Sarnoff, a Machiavellian visionary and founder of RCA and NBC, as the two race to create a new and radical form of mass communication—television! This alternately hilarious and touching story examines the lives of the two brilliant men and questions the ideals and motives of a generation of pioneering inventors in the early 20th century.
