Vernon Bright lives up to his name in more ways than one, and narrator Nigel Lambert is hilarious in his portrayal of the talented student. Vernon is in charge of the lights for the school performance of ROMEO AND JULIET. On the basis of past events, everyone, including the teacher/director, is nervous about what sort of light show Vernon has planned. Vernon explains complex scientific concepts simply and accurately to his less than bright friends and listeners. There are laughs aplenty as words such as "poleaxed" and "ghastly joviality" are used appropriately. A fun way to learn about science and Shakespeare.
