We use this list to send you details about our annual festival (this includes information about how to participate, or put a show into the festival, as well as just about what to see) We email an average of once a month, except in the run-up to the festival when there's more to say in news and more recommendations. We occasionally include information about other events which we think you might find interesting, but we do not and will never share our list with other organisations, allow others to analyse data, sell names, etc. We ask for a postcode because it helps us to know where audiences come from, and it's possible that some information may be more useful to people in the immediate locality.

You can unsubscribe via the link on every mailing you will get from us (including one you will receive in just a moment to confirm that you're on the list).

Amy Tobias in

The Quantum Physics of My Heart

A comedy science lecture about growing up in the '90s

If Amy's dad is a kick-ass scientist then she can be one too, right? Isn't that probability, or logic, or something?
Using neither probability nor logic, Amy invites you to her comedy science lecture about growing up in the '90s. Inspired by her dad's work as a scientist, Amy has always tried to understand the world around her using science. Now, with the help of some complex scientific theories (not really), Amy grapples with the teenage experiences that shaped her, such as a) teacher crushes, b) best friend betrayals, c) an inappropriate advance from an older man and d) trying to be a good Jew.

An eccentric, inquisitive show about how we make sense of the world. Expect '90s bangers, some ultra-immersive group Hubba Bubba chewing and a test tube or two. Developed with support from JW3 and fresh from premiering at The VAULT Festival 2018.

"Amy is an enthusiastic pupil" (Mr Murray, Science teacher)
"Fully charming, popping with humour" (The Reviews Hub ****)
"Deliciously eccentric, ¦masterful comedy, and a whole lot of heart" (Arthur's Seat ****)
"Tons of charisma and more than just a hint of teen angst" (A Younger Theatre)
