curious directive are to present Spindrift, their first new play performed in their new central-Norwich Studio Theatre.
Spindrift uncovers the stranger than fiction new science of Quantum Biology, as it dives into complex family dynamics via the extreme limits of human imagination.
Running Thursday 19 May to Saturday 4 June 2022, it has been written in collaboration with leading scientists, Prof Jim Al-Khalili, Dr Sapphire Lally and Prof. Johnjoe McFadde.
Carol has just been awarded a Nobel Prize for her work in Quantum Biology. Her eldest, Niamh is swimming across the Atlantic Ocean. Her middle child, Ira, an air traffic controller, has just lost contact with Cargo Flight QF838. Her youngest, Noa, is discovering her ability to walk through walls. Her husband, Richard, went missing in a sailing accident 20 years ago, but has just been heard over the radio waves.
Devised collaboratively, Founder and Artistic Director Jack Lowe, brings together a cast of four women, led by Amanda Hadingue as Carol (curious directive Deciphering, RSC’s The Winter’s Tale, Complicité’s The Master & Margarita), Sophie Steer as Noa (curious directive associate Deciphering, Antler’s Civilisation, Breach’s It’s True It’s True It’s True), Kate Shenton as Ira (curious directive Frogman) and Katherine Newman as Niamh (curious directive Your Last Breath/Film Bohemian Rhapsody).
