Fri 28 Oct The God Particle


This play is set in the village of Threepiggs. Dr Bex Kenworthy from the nearby Institute of Advanced Quantum Theory is in the pub, having been stood up by a lab-technician. When Dr Gilbert Romans arrives, things are looking up... until she discovers he is, in fact, the new local vicar. She is die-hard sceptical scientist. He is a heavenly-minded clergyman. Together they create entirely the wrong kind of reaction.

But there was undoubtedly some chemistry, which keeps Dr Bex coming back to Gilbert, asking questions about his faith and how he can believe in miracles, in spite of the evidence. Gilbert gives every bit as good as he gets and the result is crackling dialogue, cut and thrust debate and plenty of belly laughs.

The story is far more than simply talking head. Together they are drawn into a mystery - the sudden disappearance of Gilbert's predecessor. Is there any link between this, some exploding TV-detector vans, the unexplained bending of time and even a talking donkey? Will science or faith prevail?

The God Particle is a light-hearted but serious-minded play about faith, evidence, science and the importance of keeping an open mind. It's little bit Rev meets Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy or, maybe, The Vicar of Dibley meets Dr Who.
