What would happen if someone was able to prove, scientifically, the existence of God? When Edie, a student in university lecturer Henry Brook's physics class, seems to do exactly that, his universe - including his marriage to celebrity atheist author Virginia - is rocked.

BWW Review: DESSERT, Southwark Playhouse
by Charlie Wilks - Jul 19, 2017
