As part of this year’s Manchester Science Festival, the Museum of Science and Industry (Mosi) will host X&Y, a play that pushes the boundaries of imagination. The unconventional love story, created by Twin Primes Theatre Company, follows two people who are trapped in a universe that they don’t understand. The production, directed by Dermot Keaney, uses humour and maths to explore some of the biggest philosophical and scientific questions – apt for the venue. The performance stars Marcus du Sautoy, a renowned mathematician, author and TV presenter, and Complicite actress and mathematician Victoria Gould, who together make up the production company behind this unique philosophical piece of theatre. The Science Festival – produced by Mosi – allows people to explore, play, create and experiment. Tickets for X&Y are now available for evening and afternoon performances.
Wed 30 Oct – Sun 3 Nov, Museum of Science and Industry, Liverpool Road, Castlefield, M3 4FP, Wed – Sun 7pm, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun 1pm, £10 adults, £8 concessions, www.manchestersciencefestival.com
