Tabard Theatre
by James Cary

Tickets: £10 - £14


A quantum physicist and a vicar walk into a bar… joining forces to solve a perplexing mystery, they discover the real meaning of faith, knowledge, love and the importance of keeping an open mind.

The God Particle is a 75-minute one-act play featuring Rev Dr Gilbert Romans, the new local vicar, and Dr Bex Kenworthy from the Institute of Advanced Quantum Physics. Their meeting produces a big-bang-chemical-reaction of entirely the wrong kind, but strange goings on in the village of Threepiggs force them to work together and find their common ground.

In a heart-warming, laugh-out-loud way, The God Particle takes science and religion seriously, with each challenging the other. The play explores the purpose and practice of both, and how they can come together.

James Cary was inspired to write this play after hearing someone describe having faith as ‘irrational’. He wanted to explore if it was indeed so. James has been writing comedy for over fifteen years. His work includes two series of the BBC’s hit sitcom Miranda and episodes of My Hero and My Family. For the radio his credits include three series of Hut 33 and four series of award-winning Think the Unthinkable starring Marcus Brigstocke and
David Mitchell. He has also written four series of Another Case of Milton Jones with Mock the Week’s Milton Jones. His sitcom for BBC3, Bluestone 42, about a bomb disposal unit in Afghanistan ran on BBC3 from 2013-15.

First performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 2013, the God Particle is touring theatres, churches and schools throughout the country and plays one night at the Tabard Theatre.
