ALBERT EINSTEIN: RELATIVITIVELY SPEAKING
by John Hinton
The year is 1933 and Albert is giving his inaugural lecture on Special and General Relativity at Princeton University. But it's tough when your two wives and mother keep coming in, your equations are being used to make atomic bombs and there’s the small (rather large) matter of the Universe to explain.
Then again, Albert IS the cleverest man on the planet as well as the proud owner of the über-coolest moustache in science so buckle in for a musical comedy lecture like no other, featuring his two wives and mum on the piano, guest star rapper MC Squared, peer-reviewed explanations of his landmark scientific theories and the wurst sausage joke ever...

Here’s a treasure… handled with something close to brilliance… for respect, theatricality, wit and decency, this one’s a winner.
★★★★★ Libby Purves, The Times
Hinton expertly makes the most complicated of concepts easily intelligible… Delightful.
★★★★★ British Theatre Guide
A masterclass. Genius, Mr Hinton, Einstein would be proud.
The Sunday Times
It’s Atomic! Tickets may go at the speed of light.
★★★★ Broadway Baby
The clearest – and certainly the funniest – explanation of the Theory of Relativity I know.
John Lloyd (creator of QI)
It’s funny, but also mind-expanding – and there aren’t many shows that achieve both so well.
★★★★ The Big Issue
Gloriously scatty… a winning formula.
A winning combination – fantastic performances, writing and concept.
