'What’s the Matter?'
A quantum comedy about love in the subatomic world
An unexplained cat theft from a physics laboratory leads scientist Smithy on a journey through his own experiment into the subatomic world.
The situation becomes charged and it is impossible to stay neutral.
Can he find the cat and win over his colleague Sarah in the process?
Will the outcome be positive or negative?
As seen at the British Science Festival, a sci-fi adventure through the strange and wonderful world of quantum physics, performed by two actors and an overhead projector.
Featuring physical comedy, scientific slapstick, and a search for Schrodinger’s cat.
Be prepared for a very silly show about a very intelligent subject.
Developed with support from Dr Helen Heath (Bristol University), Arts Council England and the Institute of Physics.

The new Acorn Fund.
The Acorn has striven for many years to provide a venue for affordable theatre and events for the local communities in and around Penzance.
Our events are staffed and run by volunteers and we are currently putting on the maximum number of shows that we can with the resources that we have.
Alas, in these times of austerity, all this is not enough.
Therefore, reluctantly, the trustees have decided to introduce a small increase to our ticket prices, in order to form an Acorn Fund to help us maintain this lovely old building and help ensure that it remains a lively cultural hub to serve our community in the future.
