The WALK IN THE SNOW: the true story of Lise Meitner

big word performance—Creative Manitoba

Before you know it he’s off, in his abrupt style. If you’re good at processing information very quickly, then you’ll be able to appreciate this show significantly more than I did, because I am not a very fast thinker. Nevertheless, I learned more about science during this show than any of my high school science courses. Jem Rolls tells the story of Lise Meitner, an often overlooked physicist who was most prolific during the era of Nazi Germany. It can take a moment for you to understand that he portrays characters through his physicality, but it’s not completely necessary to understand this scientist’s tragic story. Engaging, powerful, memorable, and just like that he’s out again, in his abrupt style.
