The Earthworks / Myth
Myth by Matt Hartley and Kirsty Housley, from an original idea by Kirsty Housley.

The Earthworks / Myth

The Earthworks By Tom Morton-Smith

The Earthworks
On the eve of the activation of the Large Hadron Collider, two strangers – a journalist and a scientist – share their experiences of loss and hope in a funny but deeply touching one-act play. Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer, created for the RSC in 2014, was a smash hit, transferring to the West End.

Myth
In one wine-fuelled evening, two couples debate their materialistic lifestyle. As their dinner party descends into chaos, their friendship and their lives are irreparably changed. A theatrical experiment into those things we don’t want to see or say.

(Guardian).
