“I had smaller ambitions, I wanted to be God”.

In a world where knowledge is power, how far should we go? What drives us forward and what makes us snap? Love, ambition, hope and betrayal. These are the themes explored in Shelagh Stephenson’s’ beautifully layered play over the span of two centuries and within the debate of Art versus Science asks us where the line is drawn in morality and ethics.
