Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams was the Hugo Award Winning creator of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for BBC radio, which has been adapted into just about every medium on Earth (and probably elsewhere). He was also a novelist, essayist, humorist, atheist, satirist and dramatist. Adams died of a heart attack on 11 May 2001 at age 49.

One of the core themes of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is the search for meaning; the ultimate answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. The answer, of course, is 42, which is to say that we have to make our own meaning. We believe that theatre is a way to do that, to create meaning through story and shared experience, and that a performance of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, besides being hilarious, is a celebration of what we created Fault Line Theatre to do.
