This year’s musical, The Theory of Relativity, ran last week at the Bishop Strachan School from Thursday, Feb. 7 to Friday, Feb. 10. It was an excellent showcase of UCC and BSS theatrical and musical talent. Check out a photo gallery from the show below.
The show is unique, unfolding through a series of scenes in which a group of university students learn that their lives are linked: scenes explore the idea that every person has an impact on others and characters in the show are thereby united. The play explores different challenges faced by students, such as heartbreak and struggling to meet great expectations–and suggests the power of human connection solves problems. As Einstein’s Theory of Relativity presents space and time as a unified entity, the musical sees, in people’s challenges, that which binds them together.
