Fireworks 10th September 2008, 10:28am. The Large Hadron Collider is activated for the first time.

Fireworks is an experimental piece of new writing exploring the dichotomy of whether the connections we make in life form through fate, or are random events in a chaotic universe. Paralleling two narratives in two timelines, this is a story about love, faith and the science behind CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

Here’s an interview about Fireworks with its writer, Alex Robins.

And here’s an interview with Alex and director Jack Bradfield on PRSD.

And some tweeted reviews after the (sold out!) performance in December at Plymouth’s Theatre Royal:

@Sam_Hunter9 : Can’t find enough praise for #fireworks tonight at

@TRPlymouth. A beautifully crafted show with a captivating relationship between the characters. Smashed it out the park @FireworksShow@JMStevensActing
@alexmccauleyuk   really brilliant play by @NotAlexRobins and performance from @JMStevensActing, incredibly proud to see my mates out here smashing it, to all my south west/London friends this is definitely a show worth catching.
