Oxygen – Play this week in Luxembourg


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. With the action shifting between the 18th century characters and a fictitious 2001 Nobel committee disputing who should be awarded the first “retro” Nobel Prize for Chemistry, it focuses on the role of competition and priority in scientific research and on the joy and drama of scientific discovery. 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?

We received a rather nice review for the play from The Chornicle.
