An unexplained cat theft from a physics laboratory leads scientist Smithy on a journey through his own experiment into the subatomic world. The situation becomes charged and it is impossible to stay neutral. Can he find the cat and win over his colleague Sarah in the process? Will the outcome be positive or negative?


As seen at the British Science Festival, a sci-fi adventure through the strange and wonderful world of quantum physics. Featuring physical comedy, scientific slapstick, and a search for Schrodinger’s cat. Be prepared for a very silly show about a very intelligent subject.

Made at The Pound, Corsham. Created with the support of Salisbury Arts Centre, Corsham Town Council, The Wallace Curzon Charitable Trust, The Elmgrant Trust, and Dr Helen Heath from the University of Bristol
