About this event

A thought-provoking and amusing play about today's scientific dilemmas, featuring cameos from real scientists.

Cy has lost his faith in science. So he goes to see his local doctor, but he finds no answers, just more questions. Soon he has drawn the doctor into his crisis, and they embark on adventure to resolve the questions that dog them both.

On the way they run headlong into scientific controversies and encounter scientists from controversial research areas who cast light on age-old questions of facts and data, doubt and uncertainty belief and scepticism.

The show grew from a surprising collaboration between dastardly director Michele Conyngham, concerned science communicator, Phil "PhD" Dooley, and thelf-thentred thespian Patrick Davies Trumper. It'll have you laughing AND thinking!

Presented by:
Phil Dooley, Patrick Davies Trumper and Michele Conyngham

Phil Dooley (Doc) is a science communicator, journalist, musician... he writes for magazines and websites about nanotech and astrophysics, organises Pub Physics nights and sings about Pluto and Schrodinger's cat.
