16th March - 1st April
CERTAINTY IS NOT OF THIS WORLD
★★★★★ Best thing I have seen at the Fringe (Fringe Monkey)
★★★★ An excellent performance of a really fascinating subject which addressed one of the age old questions concerning science and humanity (Terry Eatham - LondonTheatre1)
★★★★ McLoughlin is an excellent actor who seamlessly slips into the role of enthusiastic university lecturer (Remotegoat)
★★★★ Prepare for a science lesson which will leave you dabbing your eyes...the connection between science and emotion is certainly thought-provoking (Rebecca Lunn - Three Weeks)
Dr. Laura Bailey (Abi McLoughlin), is a PHD in Quantum physics; she starts delivering a lecture to her freshers on the subject of quantum mechanics.
Leading her captive audience through double slits experiments and cats in boxes which are dead AND alive, all seems well and resonant with a perfect world when the lecture turns into a confession that mixes some of the more advanced ideas of physics with the professor's secrets. As the scientific world clashes with our own emotions, the audience can’t help but empathise with the vulnerable academic, but what is the tragic tale that Professor Laura Bailey slowly reveals?
The play stars Abi McLoughlin and is written by Dr. Andrea Brunello, PHD in Mathematics and Quantum Physics from Cornell University and Stony Brooks and adapted by Stefania Bochicchio
A co-production Jet Propulsion Theatre and Infallible Productions Ltd.
