Ever looked at E=MC2 and thought… what’s that all about then?
Ever been curious how a pacifist became the creative mind behind the atomic bomb?
Ever wanted to meet the genius behind the über-coolest moustache in scientific history?
Yes? No? Either way, your time has come!
Join Albert for an hour of science, silliness and the wurst sausage joke ever as he (theoretically) proves that Einstein = Musical Comedy Squared in this wunderbar show new show from the boys behind international smash hits Crunch! and The Origin of Species...
Combining comedy songs and gloriously bad puns alongside fun explanations of the science behind his landmark theories and some rather surprising revelations into the great man’s personal life, this is a show for anyone who wants to go on a hilarious and thought-provoking journey into the mind-bending scientific mysteries of the modern world.
Frantically fast-paced and wonderfully warm-hearted, discover acclaimed actor John Hinton in this celebration of the ideas, ideals and idiosyncrasies of the man whose theories sparked a revolution in modern science.
Reviews for Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking
“Amasterclass in how to make an ostensibly dry subject lively, interesting and funny… Einstein would be proud.” Sunday Times
"Tangram Theatre has hit on a winning combination – fantastic writing, performance and concept." The Argus
"My two children both loved the energy and comedic rapport Hinton brings to the show, while the adults in the theatre chuckled at the crackerjack combination of wisdom entwined with wit. A quantum leap in fringe comedy musicals." Child Friendly Brighton
