But when he harnessed the power of radio waves to send signals over long distances, what had once seemed impossible became a world-changing reality. In this original L.A. Theatre Works commission written by Anna Lyse Erikson, we’ll get a first-hand, intimate view of the precocious Italian inventor, and what he had to overcome in his quest to revolutionize the way we communicate.
