Decidedly non technical in it’s approach, the play takes a lively and witty look at the events leading up to that exciting moment when oxygen burst onto the European stage as a vitally important element in our understanding of the natural world around us.

Yet  Oxygen doesn’t revolve around test tubes : science is done by people and Oxygen is resolutely about people – their ambitions, desires, hopes, intrigues and shortcomings. But who really did discover oxygen? And what role did the women play?
