‘I’m trying to see what happens when you throw particles to get her at faster and faster speeds’ From Lights Down Productions, writer Catherine O’Shea and director Abbie Lucas comes SHARDS.

It’s 2012 and the Shard is half  completed. Matt, as wing dancer and a nurse and Laura, a particle physicist, hunting for the Higgs Boson particle, are negotiating the world of online dating desperately looking for a connection.

On their first date in Borough High Street there is as park but also catastrophe. We flit back and forth in time, with the Shard at different heights, witnessing the lives of swing dancers and particle physicists at different points of momentum, collision and propulsion. Shards features live lindy hop dancing on stage throughout.

It is a lively and entertaining play about love, loss and dedication. Watch what can happen when you throw particles and very different people together.
