The Poets Guide to Science – A Sceptic Think Tank

Concert or Performance

7 Mar 2019 to 9 Mar 2019

A thought-provoking and hilarious play about today’s scientific dilemmas, featuring cameos from real scientists. Showing at the Canberra Enlighten Festival, the play tackles the serious issues of global warming, vaccination and genetic modification, in a light hearted and fun way.

Written and directed by Michele Conyngham, the play sold out in Science Week and is headed to Adelaide Fringe.

“A highly entertaining night of science musical theatre. Mixes silliness with serious food for thought in carefully calibrated measures.”

Dr Subho Banerjee, former Science Policy Deputy Secretary, Australian Government

“A great play that addresses contemporary issues in society”

Professor Graham Durant, Director of Questacon, Canberra.
