A BRUTAL murder leads to a journey through the strange happenings at a private sanatorium in The Physicists at Leamington’s Loft Theatre.
The black comedy takes place in the 1950s, at the height of the Cold War, in Les Cerisiers, an asylum for the mentally disturbed. The story unfolds in the private drawing room which confines three physicists. One believes he is Isaac Newton, another believes he is Einstein and the third professes to be himself, but claims to receive frequent visits from King Solomon, who discloses the key ingredients of how to restore the world to its original state of goodness and perfection.
From the outset, Doctor Zahnd appears calm and collected, but she knows more than she originally lets on and, and before they know it, the physicists find they have dug themselves a hole out of which they cannot easily escape.
The story unravels with a dark, malevolent secret, which later unveils the devastating consequences, should scientific evolution fall into the wrong hands.
The production runs from July 12 to 22
