I haven't been to the theatre for a while so it was nice to get the opportunity last night to go and see a new play called "Gravity" at the mac theatre presented by the Birmingham Rep. The publicity material describes it as a "contemporary and dynamic new play about provocation".
It is set in a school where David, a science teacher with a passion for physics, is struggling to cope with the stresses induced by today's educational environment. One student Kyle is interested in science and gaining knowledge but he is targeted by two of the school bullies/troublemakers. This sets off a series of events resulting in a shocking ending.
The acting was excellent and the play was incredibly thought-provoking. A really lovely evening out.
