“All it takes is one experiment to turn the universe on its head.”

There’s no scientific reason why time moves forwards.  And, after her Dad’s funeral, Lucy is determined to prove that it doesn’t have to.

Dragging her partner Phil into her experiment, Lucy tries rewriting the rules of the universe from her kitchen using Einstein’s theory of relativity…and a lot of burnt toast. But will Lucy and Phil discover the answers she seeks, or simply lose those that they had already?

Asking the question, ‘can you do time travel with a toaster?’, Supernova is a moving and funny new play about love, grief and Physics.

This is writer Lizzy Mansfield’s debut play. It was a finalist for the Hope Mill Theatre’s ‘Through the Mill’ playwriting competition. Lizzy has a background in comedy in film and TV. She is currently writers’ Assistant on Ted Lasso and was part of BBC Comedy Writer’s Room in 2020-2021. Her short film, An Inorganic Love Story, screened at Cannes Film Festival 2019.

Award-winning director Fay Lomas’ work includes The Girl Who Was Very Good At Lying (Omnibus Theatre; Nominated for 3 Offies, including Best Director); Land Skeins (winner of OnComm Award 2022) and shows at Rose Theatre Kingston, Royal and Derngate Northampton and Arcola.
