As in J. M. Barrie’s The Admirable Crichton... Sometimes, it's the people who no-one imagines anything of,
who do things that no one can imagine.
 

       Everyone loves a wag... well almost everyone
                        
   A 3-Act dark comedy of beliefs in collision - set in
   a hilarious lab, with science in the back seat.
 
   A night of spats & feelings of doom as disparate
   Cambridge scientists report weak research results
   to their US bosses. Will it end in tears?
 
   As personal hurts & motivations emerge,
   self-defined Lennie quips weightier modern life
   issues... real vs unreal worlds; the pain of feeling
   powerless; comfort of intelligentsia vs. real world
   of just getting by and the geographic hoarding
   of power & wealth.
 
   Lennie's nemesis and fancy, sex-bomb Lab
   Administrator Katrina, just can't take it - running
   interference with Lennie and the scientists.
 
                          How will the night end?
            Is lovable Lennie really their liberator?
 
               Is intellect all its cracked up to be?
      Will Lennie be fired or can he turn the tables
                      and make it with Katrina?
 
          Can survival render intelligentsia irrelevant?
          
     A big thank you to Director Kenn Michaels, The
     Reading Committee, Casting Department and six
     Actors @ Actors & Writer's London Studio.
 
     Also the expert audience of 70 professional
     directors, actors & writers who suggested many
     critical changes - now incorporated in the
     latest draft.
 

Scientists can be crazy too - hilarious, boisterous, engaging, profound.  
Many thanks to...

   "Who'd set a comedy in a science lab only someone who's lived it & laughed.
    Over a decade of managing staid science labs also saw ludicrous incidents,
    codgers & kind hearts, wags
 
& oddballs, alcoholic mavericks, the conceited."
