Transit of Venus - on stage!

Post by rwilkinson » Fri Oct 11, 2013 2:30 pm

There's a play based on the historic events of Venus Transit expeditions touring this area over the next month:
Following a very successful debut at the 24/7 Fringe festival in Manchester, 2012, Eric Northey's hit play is embarking on a tour of non-standard theatrical venues. It includes a 75 minute performance from a strong cast, as well as an optional Q&A session with the writer and director to discuss the historical context of the play and the major developments in our understanding of the Solar System made by the characters. This is not small adventure and we hope that you’ll support us as we try to reach new audiences and offer new and exciting theatre produced in the North-West.
I wonder if it includes the BAS expedition to Winter Hill summit in 2012?
