First performed in 1982 at the Royal Court, London, Insignificance imagines what happens on a hot summer night in 1953 when Albert Einstein is visited in his hotel room by Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio and Senator Joseph Mcarthy.
In one of the all time great theatre scenes the actress goes on to describe the theory of relativity to the professor using flashlights, helium balloons and a Mickey Mouse toy train.

The combination of politics, sex, brute strength and knowledge makes for a combustible mixture… well played and well-staged.
See Insignificance as soon as possible. Do not miss out on this rare opportunity to see important theatre performed in the most intimate of spaces.

Astonishing. This heady piece is perfect for a night on the town.
