PUBLISHED: 13:41 05 April 2019
The world’s first female time-travelling doctor is returning to Clevedon’s Theatre Shop on May 30.
Dr Rosy Carrick is taking her show, Passionate Machine, to the venue, in Clevedon Triangle Centre, at 7.30pm.
Carrick’s show won best new play at the Brighton Fringe last year.
She also picked up The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The play recounts how Rosy had to build a time machine to rescue her future self, stuck 100 years in the past, where she had travelled to save Russian revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky from suicide.
She explains the reality of time travel, effortlessly taking in David Bowie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, sci-fi, CERN and particle physics, self-discovery, motherhood, Dr Who, #MeToo and 1980s time travel films along the way.
It’s an amazing ride.
