People who see the world differently
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.
Is Lab Cleaner Lennie in the wrong place at the
wrong time? Or does he have the canny gift of
advancing his pithy take on modern-life issues ...
real vs unreal worlds; the pain of feeling powerless;
comfort of intelligentsia vs. real world of just getting by.
Are the scientists open to his view of the world? Is
he open to theirs?
Lennie's nemesis and fancy - sex-bomb Russian
Lab Administrator Katrina, just can't take it - running
interference with Lennie and the scientists.
How will the night end?
Can Lennie coax them into seeing
all its cracked up to be? Does he see another,
personal side to scientists we don't see on TV?
- Is he
loveable Lennie be fired by Katrina or can he
turn the tables & make it with her?
Can survival render intelligentsia irrelevant?

"Who'd set a comedy in a science lab
only someone who's lived it & laughed."
