Robin Hawdon’s unique and innovative play examines the extraordinary life and career of the author of the international best-seller “A Brief History of Time”. In a brilliant theatrical tour de force, God appears as not only himself but in the various guises of Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, professors, mathematicians, the Pope and even the Queen to debate with Hawking the essential clash between religious teaching and scientific progress through the ages. From his early days as a precocious undergraduate at Cambridge and the diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, through his awkward courtship and ultimately failed marriage to his first wife Jane, the drama is played out against the backdrop of Hawking’s life and theories, a theatrical battle of wits between Hawking and God himself. “The theatrical equivalent of the Big Bang”. - Daily Telegraph
