Amelia and the Mapmaker

Amelia and the Mapmaker is the new name for the show ‘Everything and Nothing’ that I toured with the19thstep theatre company in 2011. This video was put together to promote the show.

It’s a pretty hard plot to describe; bringing together the disappearance of famed 1930s aviatrix Amelia Earhart, the Poincaré conjecture (‘every simply connected closed three-manifold is homeomorphic to the three-sphere’) and the short story The Library of Babel by Argentinian fantasist Jorge Luis Borges.

An amazing piece of theatre, with the gorgeous Lucy Stevens singing the part of Amelia, and glorious simple staging.
