SUPERNOVA - Play by local writer Lizzy Mansfield
Durham Assembly Rooms Theatre
Monday 11th & Tuesday 12th July 2022
“All it takes is one experiment to turn the universe on its head.” Asking the question, ‘can you do time travel with a toaster?’, Supernova is a moving and funny new play about love, grief and Physics.
Lizzy Mansfield is a local writer from Newcastle.. Her debut play Supernova is touring the UK this summer, and will be coming to the Durham Assembly Rooms on 11th - 12th July. The play stars Adeola Yemitan (RSC: Much Ado About Nothing) and Emilio Iannucci (The Death of Stalin). It will be directed by Fay Lomas (The Girl Who was Very Good at Lying).
The play is inspired by Lizzy’s background as a physicist, and weaves real science through the story. Alongside the performances, there will be an engagement workshop for local schools on 12th July as well as a short talk from Dr. Francesca Chadha Day about access to university physics.
