We always knew that 'Einstein's Daughter' was very special and were delighted when Rob Johnston agreed that we should tour the play during Summer/Autumn 2012. We were lucky to find such talented and committed individuals to make this tour such a success.
Even with this strong team, and the extraordinarily good material to work with, the success of this production surpassed expectations.
Critical reviews were consistently good (see below). Einstein's Daughter' was nominated at Buxton Fringe Festival 2012 for:
BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
Through three sharply-defined characters Johnston serves up a miniature masterclass in how to construct a story... three terrific performances in 80 minutes of absorbing theatre. Full review
THE PUBLIC REVIEWS 'BEST OF 2012' LISTING
This dark, interesting and disturbing story was one of the most well-written pieces of theatre I’ve ever seen. As characters reveal their true colours and relationships unravel it becomes impossible for the audience to look away. The play also had one of the most visually disturbing scenes I’ve ever witnessed on stage, and prompted gasps and yelps of horror. Einstein’s Daughter was clever, thought-provoking and absolutely engrossing.
A wonderful play ... riveting … highly recommended. Full review

Author Rob Johnston’s writing is rich and meaningful. …rarely has a piece of theatre engaged me so much that I physically shook at the end. Absolutely outstanding. Full review
THE PUBLIC REVIEWS
Einstein’s Daughter is a moving, entertaining and sometimes disturbing piece of theatre … an unexpected gem … the script itself is absolute genius. Full review
... a great example of fantastic new writing. Johnston creates terrifying yet subtle theatre. I was gripped from start to finish. This is the kind of story that lingers with you long after the performance is over... a Fringe must see! Full review
