Watch the Donmar Warehouse’s exclusive and rather cool animation on the "holy grail of physics," with commentary from The Physicists' cast members Paul Bhattacharjee (Einstein) and Obioma Ugoala (Fantam Murillo) to help grapple with the big questions. Still trying to get your head round it all? Check out the video below!
Another nurse murdered in the world’s most illustrious sanatorium. And who’s to blame this time: Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein or the brilliant Johann Wilhelm Möbius? But what are these great minds doing here, together at the same time? Who are these men? And what have they got to hide?
Written in the shadow of the atom bomb and at a time of unprecedented scientific advance, Dürrenmatt’s hilariously satirical masterpiece, in this exhilarating new version by Jack Thorne, considers if insanity is the only refuge for the dangerously intelligent.
