About The Lonsdale Project

Despite being lauded in her field and renowned in her time, Lonsdale’s name and scientific legacy are curiously unknown by the general public. Super Paua want to change that. Their interdisciplinary team of artists, educators and scientists have challenged themselves to make a fun, engaging piece of theatre that explores X-ray diffraction, the benzene ring, pacifism, and symmetry. Written and directed by Sian Ní Mhuirí, The Lonsdale Project explores the biography of an extraordinary woman, and the scientific research which she so passionately championed. With playful dialogue and design, vivid characters, and pressing relevance to the scientific and political debates of today, The Lonsdale Project asks us to consider how we feel towards science, how we remember (or forget) the great scientists of times gone by, and whether we value curiosity, creativity, hard work and personal conviction enough to let them shape our collective future. Age Recommendation: 11+ This event will take place at: The Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS
