In a first for the Duke's Theatre, they have combined their Junior Young Actors and Over 55s PrimeTime group for 12 workshops to develop a special piece exploring the passage of time in our lives.

Supported by the Institute of Physics, the theatre has worked with physicists from Lancaster University to embed theories of gravity, entropy and time in the piece, and will appeal to those from arts and science backgrounds equally - with the ultimate aim of widening participation and increasing collaboration between the two. 

Following the performance, join the participating organisations in a discussion of how the tools and techniques can be used in schools and community theatres to work with new audiences - from young people who have negative stereotypes of who physicists are to those who don't normally see education as an option for them at all.

Resident practitioner - Liam McCormick from the Duke's Theatre creative learning team

Physicist - Dr Konstantinos Dimopoulos from Lancaster University
