Overview

“There is no path. We make the path by walking.” Antonio Machado

As this millennium began, Jack Klaff - actor, writer, Arty Type - was appointed Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at an international, multidisciplinary think-tank. Jack’s hilarious, thrilling and touching travels through countless futuristic ideas and technologies offered up magical, easy-to-understand insights about Atoms, Bytes, Cells and Days. Twenty years after its sell-out Edinburgh run, it’s time to find out whether Jack’s colleagues, all world-class ‘experts’, were appallingly wrong or amazingly right.

Jack Klaff has held professorships at Princeton University and Starlab. Jack’s long list of credits in all media includes several appearances at JST, most recently The Ice Cream Boys; his first movie role was in Star Wars: A New Hope.
