About the show

John Hinton's Scientrilogy is back for 2018, and is bigger and better than ever.

Join Albert, the genius behind the übercoolest moustache in science for a musical comedy lecture like no other. Featuring his two wives and mum on the piano, guest rapper MC Squared, and the wurst sausage joke ever, this is a show for scientists, theatre-lovers, musicians, and mathematicians alike!

The year is 1933, and Albert is giving his inaugural lecture on Special and General Relativity at Princeton University...or, at least, he's trying to. But it's tough when you're always going off on a space-time tangent, your wives and mother keep barging in, your equations are being used to make atomic bombs, and then there's the small (rather large) matter of the universe to explain.

Peer reviewed by Sussex University, 'Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking' is back in Adelaide by popular demand. See 'Relativitively Speaking' as a solo performance, or with 'Charles Darwin: Origin of Species...' and 'The Element in the Room' as part of the Scientrilogy.

Winner: ThreeWeeks Editors' Award, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016

Winner: Brighton Fringe and Off-West-End Awards.
