"What's the difference between a genius and a madman?"

"In the eighteenth century and since, Newton came to be thought of as the first and greatest of the modern age of scientists, a rationalist, ... I do not see him in this light. .... Newton was not the first of the age of reason. He was the last of the magicians." John Maynard Keyne

Congratulations to Stephen Balchin for not only his role as the Secretary of the Royal Society and the fact he directed the play, but as the writer for winning the "Best Original Script" award at the Waltham Forest Drama Festival this year. See the final picture below for Stephen with his award.

Also to be noted was the fact that Alex Ryde was in the nominations for the "Best supporting performer" award, and Phil Braithwaite was in the nominations for the "Best performance by an Actor" award.
