Pull up a chair, sip some hot chocolate, and enjoy a live, simulated radio play with a sci-fi twist.
What if technology really could grant your every wish? In Ray Bradbury’s classic The Veldt, the Hadley family lives in a “smart house” that automates practically every aspect of their lives, including a virtual-reality nursery that fulfills the Hadley children’s wildest fantasies—for better or for worse—by transforming the room into an African grassland.
First published in 1950, this classic science-fiction story has been adapted numerous times for radio, stage, and screen, and continues to serve as a cautionary tale for our hyperconnected world.
