Fringe world kicks off in Perth this week! To celebrate we've rounded up the five best science-themed shows for adults.
Atomically Correct | Friday 19 January - Sunday 21 January | The Old Courthouse
This is the (nuclear) fusion you've been waiting for! A science comedy that explores how, even though we're mostly nothing, we all still matter.
Unravel the mysteries from inside the atom with award-winning Rachel Rayner, Science Explainer. Delve into language, lies, quantum-level realities, and the happy accident that is the human race. There are sure to be plenty of puns - all particularly smashing. Whatever your state, it'll be a quarking good time.
The Wine Science Show | Friday 19 January - Sunday 21 January | The Old Courthouse
If one science comedy show isn't enough for you, you're in luck! Performing at the same venue and on the same dates as Atomically Correct is The Wine Science Show, presented by Victoria's Luke Morris.
