Brunel, Faraday, Newton

The Living History of Science

Starting in 1993, The Living History of Science Agency first offered Newton, Ada Lovelace and Darwin, via the ASE January Conference.  Each actor was schooled by Johnny but encouraged to complete their own scripts with his direction, so that the finished article was predominently their own end product. Sadly and remarkably, while Newton and Ada were immediately popular, we never got One Single enquiry for Darwin and the actor had to leave us.

Faraday and Marie Curie were soon followed by Brunel and as Johnny began writing his Educational Stage Musicals, Davy, Dalton, Einstein, Galileo, Nightingale, Boulton, Watt and Murdoch soon followed while Johnny himself presented Mendel, Kelvin (at Glasgow University) and Joseph Priestley.

Actor/Presenters came and went, as the less popular characters did not generate enough work for them to stay on. Though some did and David Hall who joined us in 1993, is still with us today, presenting Newton, Faraday and Brunel as well as a whole range of Maths prestentations.

David Hall presents for KS 2 and 3 audiences, offering two 75 minute shows per day. Wherever David plays, he invariably receives raves and repeat bookings.
