The formula for happiness
Discover black holes and the formula for happiness in a tribute to one of the greatest astrophysicists of this century, Subramanyan Chandrasekhar. The Candlestickmaker tells the story of a young New Zealand Indian student who, Lonely Planet in hand, ets off to discover India and ends up discovering the mysteries of the universe. Science rarely comes wrapped up this warm and funny.
The Candlestickmaker debuted at the New Zealand Festival 2000 in the extraordinary situation of selling out 3 months before opening, the first theatre production to do so.
Commissioned by the New Zealand International Arts Festival.
