Join Albert, the genius behind the übercoolest moustache in science, for a lecture like none you’ve ever seen.

Accompanied by his wives and mum on piano, and by guest rapper MC Squared, Albert quantum leaps us through two world wars, the wurst sausage joke ever, and even some actual proper boffin-checked science. How does light travel through a vacuum? What does it look like inside an atom? How do you make the biggest bomb in the world? And, most importantly of all, E=mc-what??? Find out the answers to all these questions and more.

Suitable for bright sparks of any age. Peer reviewed by University of Sussex.

‘Hinton expertly makes the most complicated of concepts easily intelligible… Delightful.’ ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide

‘It’s funny, but also mind-expanding – and there aren’t many shows that achieve both so well.’ ★★★★ The Big Issue

‘Something close to brilliance.’ ★★★★★ Libby Purves, The Times

Winner: Best Children’s Show, Brighton Fringe 2014, and Best Show For Young People, Offies 2015.

Tangram Theatre Company was first formed at the world-famous Jacques Lecoq physical theatre school in Paris. Past shows include many highly successful London runs, and all three parts of John Hinton’s ‘Scientrilogy’ (of which his Einstein show is part 2). They make theatre that is surprising, irreverent, politically engaged and life affirming, and they work in a way that is open, collaborative, physical and fun. They want to talk about the world we live in, and we believe that theatre can make that world a better place.
