About Collide

In the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, particles are smashing together and scientists are seeking the answers to the building blocks of our universe. Alice and Matt are confused by the rules of modern dating. They keep finding themselves together, and they’re searching for the reason why. There is background noise that gets in the way of their results, and they have to be careful about the data that they choose to analyse. But when it is announced that a Higgs Boson has been discovered, will they find the answer to the foundations of their relationship? Astrophysics meets romcom in this contemporary love story, championing the role of female scientists in society. Written by Lydia Thomson, a graduate of the Soho Writer's Lab and HighTide Academy, and winner of the inaugural Westminster Playwriting Award.
