Ernest Rutherford: Everyone Can Science! [SOLD OUT]

Wednesday 18th-Thursday 19th October 2017

Long dead moustachioed scientific giant Ernest Rutherford claws his way off the hundred-dollar bill to give his first lecture in over 70 years.

Bursting with enthusiasm, charm and 19th century wit, Ernest will take you on a verbal walking tour through his unbelievable life of science and adventure. Be warned, the front three rows might get wet…with knowledge!

Written and performed by Nic Sampson (writer for Funny Girls and star of The Brokenwood Mysteries).

“Everyone Can Science is the perfect comic equation. Sampson + Rutherford = Absolute Hilarity. Or in layman’s terms: it’s bloody funny, go.” THEATRESCENES

"… hugely fun, surprisingly sweet and peppered with enough well selected scientific and historical facts to send you scurrying to Wikipedia afterwards. Perfect for a first date." METRO MAGAZINE
