The Farnsworth Invention is a fast paced historical drama about the invention of television. It ultimately pits Russian emigrant, David Sarnoff (the founder of NBC and Chairman of RCA) against the hayseed, Western genius visionary, Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of most of the elements for television. Sorkin's play is the dramatization of the lives of Farnsworth - the unknown scientist versus the visionary communications genius - David Sarnoff who launched commercial radio and TV. One of the most exciting plays recently on Broadway and a regional premiere, Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing and A Few Good Men) loves stories about powerful visionaries.
