After a year of avoiding Covid-laced sneezes, coughs and associated respiratory droplets, Dramatis Scientificae are back! Following successful seasons in Canberra and Melbourne, Michele Conyngham, Alison Carlson and Patrick Trumper are your hosts for Stir-fried Science, a cornucopia of science, comedy, music and even a smidgin of philosophy.
Are black holes newsworthy? Should menus tell the unvarnished truth? Would you order “Dead leg of cow, brutally slaughtered and tossed in a sirop de cassis” at a PC cafe? Should scientists come down from their ivory tower and break the fourth wall?
Sketch comedy, songs and scientific research sautéed in a nerdy cermedy.
“Michele Conyngham, Phil Dooley and Patrick Trumper add a health lashing of comedy to the [scientific] mix,” says Alex First, from itellyouwhatithink.com, of DramSci’s Melbourne season last month.
So, if science is your bag, if you like a good laugh, come and see a show about science, full of variety.
Reviews from previous Dramatis Scientificae shows:
“This is a brilliant and entertaining hero’s journey through science, beliefs, fact, dogma and scepticism in the best sense of that word.”
Professor Matthew England, Climate Change Research Centre.
“A highly entertaining night of science musical theatre. Mixes silliness with serious food for thought in carefully calibrated measures.”
Dr Subho Banerjee, former Science Policy Deputy Secretary, Australian Government.
“A great play that addresses contemporary issues in society.”
Professor Graham Durant, Director of Questacon, Canberra.
