★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Archimedes’ Principle will leave the viewer totally immersed in thought." The Upcoming

★ ★ ★ ★ "A provocative, challenging piece of drama, with real depth and a creative delivery. With a challenging subject and narrative structure, Archimedes’ Principle delivers a powerful, immersive theatre experience. The high quality of writing, acting and direction are supported by slick, creative scene transitions. I was itching to discuss it with anyone who would listen after I left.

How safe are our children in the care of a stranger? How much do we know about the people we work with? How far would we go to protect ourselves?

A town that's haunted by an incident at the nearby Scouts centre. Regular swimming lessons come to a halt when a swimming instructor is accused of inappropriately touching a child during a lesson – and the dangers of Facebook creep to the surface. When history appears to repeat itself what can we do but expect the worst.

Put on your water-wings, listen to the evidence and decide for yourself...
