Play Explores Television’s Tainted Discovery


The Turning Point of the 20th Century Wasn’t on Television. It WAS Television.
“The Farnsworth Invention” opens at Bergen Community College on February 22, 2013.

“The Farnsworth Invention,” written by Aaron Sorkin, creator of the television show “The West Wing” and the film “A Few Good Men,” tells the story of a young man’s fight against corporate America.


The play will open in the Ender Hall Laboratory Theatre on the College’s main campus at 400 Paramus Road, in Paramus. Performances are scheduled for February 22, 23, 28, March 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. with matinee performances on February 23 and March 2 at 2 p.m. A special panel discussion will be held immediately following the February 28 performance.

The story centers on Philo Farnsworth, a young farm boy who loved electricity and enjoyed tinkering in his lab. He found a way of sending picture waves over the air, similar to what sound waves did for the radio. In 1926, the 22 year-old shared his creation of the television tube with the world only to have his idea stolen by spies sent by David Sarnoff, the president of Radio Corporation of America (RCA), who was determined to control emerging television technology. Naiveté and shrewdness clash as the fight for who owns the invention of television unfolds.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $7 for students and senior citizens (65 and over) and are available by calling (201) 447-7428 or online at http://tickets.bergen.edu.
