The sparks are set to fly in new show about famed inventor
An electrifying new show is all set to send the sparks flying when it charges into Lichfield in Staffordshire later this month. Entitled 12 Million Volts, the show is brought to the stage at the Lichfield Garrick theatre on Saturday 28th April by award-winning theatre company The Outbound Project, former winners of The Les Enfants Terribles Partnership Award, which has been awarded annually to new and aspiring theatre companies since its introduction in 2012.
Expect the sparks to fly during new show 12 Million Volts
The Outbound Project will bring to life the story of Nikola Tesla, once described by no less an authority than Albert Einstein as the world's smartest man. Tesla, who was born in Croatia in 1856, was an engineer who became widely known for designing the alternating-current (AC) electric system, which is still the predominant electrical system used across the world today. He is also credited for inventing the Tesla Coil which is still used in radio technology today. Tesla is also said to have entered into a major feud with fellow inventor Thomas Edison when the pair worked together.
The Lichfield Garrick will be lit up for new 'electrifying' show
12 Million Volts sets out to tell the account of Tesla but, as the production makes out, there are always at least three sides to every story - one person's side, the other person's side… and the truth!. Audiences are told to expect holograms of some description, pigeons with lasers coming out of their eyes, and a whole load of lighting tricks that together make up this 'high voltage' show. 12 Million Volts, which forms part of the Lichfield Garrick's Introducing series, will take place in the theatre's more intimate studio on Saturday 28 April at 7.45pm. Tickets are priced at £17 and are available by visiting www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling the Box Office on 01543 412121.
