Are black holes newsworthy? Should menus tell the unvarnished truth?
Three performers play a variety of characters in comic sketches, stand-up, and songs in the latest science comedy show STIR FRIED SCIENCE from science-based theatre group Dramatis Scientificae who “help working scientists share their experiences and their research, through narrative, theatre and film.”
It is a cornucopia of science, comedy, music and a smidgen of philosophy with guest appearances each night by local scientists from fields ranging from astronomy, physics, genetics, climate change, sustainable households, and immunology.
The performers are: Dr Phil, a physicist and science communicator; and thespians Michele Conyngham and Patrick Trumper.
Local guest scientists include Sean Elliott, Alyshah Ladhu, Catriona Nguyen-Robertson, and Melissa James.
Directed by Margie McCrae.
