Peter Parnell's "QED" is an up-close and personal portrait of Richard Feynman, Nobel laureate in physics, lifelong advocate for creativity and originality in science, as well founder of the field of nanotechnology, and inspiration to young and aspiring scientists the world over. "QED" relives a day in the life of Feynman, storyteller extraordinaire, with all of the disjointed hobbies, fascinations, curiosities, stories, and quirky juxtapositions that made him a unique character in 20th century science. The performance is free and open to the public, best suited to the interest of adults and students ages 15 and up.
“The play 'QED' is a seductive mix of science, human affections, moral courage and comic eccentricity ... not to be missed.” -- New York Magazine
"QED" follows previous years' performances of "Manya: A Living History of Marie Curie" and "Copenhagen" as part of a new outreach program at Northwestern called ETOPiA: Engineering Transdisciplinary Outreach Project in the Arts, designed to foster interdisciplinary dialogue between university and community exploring the role of science in society. This year's production is supported by the following Northwestern University institutions: The Materials Research Center, the International Institute for Nanotechnology, and The Graduate School.
Northwestern's production of "QED" is located in the Cohen Commons Room B482 of the Technological Institute, 2145 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL. Directions to campus are available at http://aquavite.northwestern.edu/maps/buildinglookup.cgi?lookupid=132. Parking is available in campus lots without a permit after 4 p.m. weekdays, and all day on weekends.
