ALBERT EINSTEIN: RELATIVITIVELY SPEAKING
Sallis Benney Theatre, 58-67 Grand Parade, Brighton BN2 0JY
Sunday 1 March, 7:30pm
The year 2015 will see three important anniversaries coincide. It is the 100th anniversary of the General Theory of Relativity, in which Einstein proved that light can bend around stars. It is the 70th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan, in which Einstein’s famous equation E=mc₂ was put to monstrous practical use. And, perhaps most significantly, it is the 10th anniversary of Brighton Science Festival.
At a time when ever more questions are asked about the responsibility scientists have for the practical uses of their discoveries, what better way to explore these moral questions than with a hit musical comedy?
Brighton Science Festival’s final event this year is a lecture like none you’ve ever attended. In local actor/writer John Hinton’s award-winning show, Albert – accompanied by his two wives and mother on piano – will quantum leap his audience through two Theories of Relativity, two World Wars, two very big bombs, and the wurst sausage joke ever. Peer reviewed by the University of Sussex.
“Something close to brilliance” – Libby Purves, The Times
“The clearest – and certainly the funniest – explanation of the Theory of Relativity I know” – John Lloyd (creator of QI)
£10 standard / £8 concession. Ages 11+. Doors open 7pm.
