Einstein for beginners

A positive, optimistic introduction to the life and ideas of Einstein, suitable for 10-14 year olds:

We join him on a voyage through time and space, from the nucleus of the atom to the outermost reaches of the universe, from childhood geek to the unfolding of his genius amidst some of the most dramatic events of the 20th century …

Created in collaboration with the British director Alex Byrne, the show poses profound questions to young people about science and what we use it for.


”...both a classic development story and a piece of illustrated scientific theory – elegantly told using a beautiful combination of film, music and slapstick – intelligent young-peoples’ theatre, of a calibre, that is all too seldom seen.
A greatly entertaining time in the theatre, with loads to think and speak about afterwords.”
