Science and religion go head to head in David Baddiel’s debut play: a ferociously funny battle for power, fame and followers.
When physics student Edie seems to prove, scientifically, the existence of God, it has far-reaching effects. Not least for her lecturer, Henry Brook, his marriage to celebrity atheist author Virginia – and his entire universe.
