A scientist and a vicar walk into a bar. Joining forces to solve a perplexing mystery, they discover the real meaning of faith, knowledge, love and the importance of keeping an open mind.
The God Particle is a romantic comedy with a hint of sci-fi from award-winning co-writer of BBC1’s Miranda, BBC3’s Bluestone 42 and Radio 4’s Another Case of Milton Jones. It’s deep, smart, and very funny.

2. Big Screen (Under 50 people)
Why not watch show the play on a bigger screen in Church or a hall?
Watching comedy together is usually much more fun and builds atmosphere and it might be a good way of welcoming non-regulars into your church. You could then discuss the show in smaller groups afterwards.
In the Big Screen set, you’ll find a DVD, discussion questions that can be photocopied and five copies of the script for group leaders. It also includes a licence to show the DVD in a public setting.
This set costs £60 + P&P (and includes a DVD, a licence, 5 scripts, discussion questions and an audio CD of the original production)
3. Very Big Screen (Over 50 people)
The National Theatre has screenings in cinemas. Why not turn your church into a cinema, followed by some discussion? You could even sell tickets to cover costs.
In the Big Screen set, you’ll find a DVD, photo-copiable discussion questions and seven hard copies of the script for group leaders, plus PDFs. It also includes a licence to show the DVD in a public ticketed setting.
This set costs £100 + P&P (and includes a DVD, a link to a download of the MP4, a licence, 7 scripts, discussion questions and an audio CD of the original production)
If you would like James Cary, the writer/producer of the play, to lead the discussion or answer questions at your screening, please discuss this with him separately. Please contact him via the contact page.
All sets available from Zadok Media
Making the most of the God Particle
The God Particle presents a great opportunity for those in and outside the church to discuss faith and science through a shared experience. This can be done in three ways.
1. Small Screen
Why not watch the play on a DVD in a small group – or home group – and spend some time discussing it afterwards over a glass of wine or a meal? In the Small Screen set, you get a DVD, some discussion questions and four copies of the script to refer to and talk about.
This set costs £30 + P&P (and includes a DVD, 4 scripts, discussion questions and an audio CD of the original production, worth £43)
