We are standing motionless ... on a planet that pulls us toward it at 32 ft per second ... and spins at 1070 miles per hour ... and orbits the sun at 67,000 miles per hour ... in a galaxy careening through space at 490,000 miles per hour.

Hey, it’s all relative.

But that’s nothing compared to the seismic impact of simple human connection.

The Theory of Relativity is a joyous, youthful musical exploration of the surprising interconnectedness of our own personal orbits as we stand “motionless” on this little rock hurtling through space. Sheridan's Canadian Music Theatre Project continues to be Canada’s incubator for the development of new musical works. The Theory of Relativity is a new musical by award winning authors Neil Bartram and Brian Hill.
