Script is published by Dramatic Publishing. It was adapted by Bradbury himself. One can't argue with Bradbury's immense success as a writer, but the script isn't a very good adaptation. Parts of it work well for the stage, other parts don't. Personally, I think there is a lot in the book that could have worked better than some of the stories he chose.

As I indicated, I had flirted with this work for a long time. Finally, I let the challenge of staging a play on Mars outweigh my reservations about the script.

Overall, I was please with the result, but I would hope the Bradbury estate would allow another adaptation.
