The Walk in the Snow

July 4, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

The true story of Lise Meitner: physicist, pioneer, fugitive.

Written and performed by Jem Rolls

One of the greatest moments in scientific history
Christmas Eve, 1938.
Two Jewish refugees from the Nazis go for a walk in the Swedish snow.
Sat on a tree trunk, they discover the atom can be and has been split.
And the world is never the same again.
A hugely original piece of direct no-mucking-about historical storytelling.

Chiefly famous for NOT getting the Nobel Prize. “When she is perhaps best remembered for thirty years of scientific achievement, as a pioneering woman, and for the walk in the snow.”
