John Evans French will direct this amazing script by Peter Parnell. It’s based on the writings of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. QED, in this case, does not stand for Quod Erat Demonstrandum, but Quantum Electrodynamics. The graphic in the logo above is known as a Feynman Diagram and demonstrates the scientist’s groundbreaking work in QED. The two-character play is set in 1986, near the end of Feynman’s life, and captures his enthusiasm for science as well as his battle with cancer. Christopher Key will play Feynman and Savanna Balfour will play Miriam Field, a graduate student.
There will be a private performance of QED on November 5 for the Whatcom County Medical Society. A full production run is scheduled for Fall 2015 at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center. Watch this space for further details.
