ALBERT EINSTEIN: RELATIVITIVELY SPEAKING Set for 2014 Adelaide Fringe
After receiving nominations for Best Theatre Show and Best Theatre Performer at the 2012 Adelaide Fringe, John Hinton returns to Holden Street Theatres, 34 Holden Street Hindmarsh for the 2014 Fringe with his new scientific musical comedy entitled Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking.
Ever wondered who Albert Einstein really was? Ever wanted to travel back in time? Ever been interested in what actually happens in a black hole? Ever been curious about how they made the atom bomb? Or ever looked at E=mc2 and thought ... what's that all about then?
Playing from 11 February to 16 March, Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking tackles these questions and much, much more.
Written by and starring John Hinton, Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking combines comedy, songs, clowning and the wurst sausage joke ever alongside proper explanations of the science behind Einstein's landmark theories and some rather surprising revelations into the great man's personal life. The show is a hilarious and thought-provoking answer to everything you ever wanted to know about Einstein but were too afraid to ask!
This is the second time that Hinton has teamed up with director Daniel Goldman of Tangram Theatre Company to bring a scientist's life to the stage through musical comedy, following their previous Adelaide Fringe critical and box office success (big breath here!) The Origin Of Species By Means Of Natural Selection Or The Survival Of (R)Evolutionary Theories In Face Of Scientific And Ecclesiastical Objections: Being A Musical Comedy About Charles Darwin (1809-1882).
The show will be enjoyed by anyone with a sense of humour and a passing interest in how the Universe works, and comes with a PG certificate, with a recommendation of age 11+.
