The Poet's Guide to Science

The Poet's Guide to Science

The Poet's Guide to Science addresses the serious issues of global warming, vaccination and genetic modification in a satirical, slapstick, funny play. Meet real scientists (Dr Anne-Sophie Nielen, Dr Rebecca Colvin, PHD student Harry Sutton and more) discussing their research and understanding of science with a couple of actors - and the audience.

Go to the Night Noodle Markets (open at 5.30pm) then the play (6.30 - 8) then Enlighten! A show written for adults and enjoyed by 8 year olds and up.
