7 thoughts on “FOR SCIENCE!

  1. I’ve seen this show twice and it’s one of my all-time favourites. I’ve been Fringing for 20 years and this is the first time I felt compelled to go up on stage and participate.

    I wouldn’t mind if this show was 3 hours long; I could watch these bits all night.

  2. So much fun! An entertaining combination of physical comedy, mime, and science. Lots of opportunity for audience participation, and the finale involving both the audience and the audience volunteers is amazing. Hubby’s #1 favourite show and my #2 of the 7 we’ve seen so far. Five stars.

  3. The premise of this performance is unique and it works 150%! Not very many things are LOL for my husband but this one did it. Definitely 5/5 for this one.

  4. Saw this at a previous Fringe and it was super fun and entertaining. The format of the show (mostly silent, but with audience participation) made for a really unique and engaging experience.

  5. This was incredibly fun and the entire audience had a blast with it. Some of the audience “volunteers” were youngsters and the performers were really good with them. Exceeded my expectations in every way.

  6. For Science! Demands rigorous observation, a sense of adventure and oh yes lots of participation! Hilarious crescendo of comedy antics. Thanks for the yuks Small Matters Productions. #wpgfringe

  7. FOR SCIENCE had the audience eating out of their palms. It was an emotional roller-coaster, in a really good way. Lots of performers stepped up for the voluntary audience participation; kind’ve a midnight cabaret warm-up #wpgfringe
