The Theory of Relativity to open at Drayton Arms Theatre

Theory of RelativityThe Theory of Relativity is a new chamber musical by composer and lyricist Neil Bartram and book writer Brian Hill (Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks, The Adventures of Pinocchio, Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Story of My Life).

The show explores the notion that all people are intricately interconnected; that our personal journeys can have profound effects on those with whom we come into contact, from our intimate partners to complete strangers. Through songs and monologues, eight performers create an array of characters whose lives intersect as they explore the unfolding mysteries and adventures in their lives. 2015 is the 110th anniversary of Einstein’s landmark theory E=mc2 and the 60th anniversary of his death; the principles that underpin Einstein’s belief that “only a life lived for others is worth living” infuse this musical with warmth while examining the wonders and complexities of the human experience.
