Synopsis: In John Doyle's play Vere (Faith), the battle of science versus religion is fought out in the crumbling mind of a physics professor (Vere) as he succumbs to Alzheimers. The stars have certainly aligned as part of the action involves Vere travelling to CERN to hunt for the fundamental particle, the Higgs boson. The play is both uproariously funny and deeply poignant.
