My Life as an Experiment

Sunday 1st March, 8pm

Suitability: 18+


A scientist puts his life, his career, and his field under the microscope in this theatrical essay on the scientific method. What does it mean to make a discovery? And how does it feel? Setting himself up as an experiment, he will form a theory on his own life - with live music, songs, and flights of imagination - as he communes with the Muses of Science: Curiosity, Diligence, Inspiration, and Obsession. Devised and produced by Wireless Mystery Theatre with Dr. Alan Trudgett and Dr. Ruth Kelly of Queen's University, Belfast.

Wireless Mystery Theatre has produced work for BBC Radio 3 The Proms, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Scotland, and RTE, and their 20-play Edinburgh Fringe Festival run received 4-star reviews. WMT has worked with writers Carlo Gebler, Ian Sansom, Ciaran Carson, and with the family of W.R Rodgers in bringing these writers’ works to the stage.
