Writing musicals about maths is a skill few people could lay claim to.
However, for Johnny Ball, science communicator, Engineering & Technology Board, 'ambassador of engineering' and former presenter of children's television science programmes, it couldn't be easier.
Not to mention successful.
In 2000, Ball's musical 'Tales of Maths & Legends' brought the idea that maths can rock 'n' roll to 200,000, nine to 14 year olds across the country as part of the Department of Education & Employment's Maths Year 2000.
Ball wrote, produced and starred in the live theatre show, in a bid to help children understand how maths surrounds their lives.
The show was so successful that the Department for Education & Employment (DfEE) asked Ball to write another to celebrate its 2002 'Year of Science & Technology.'
Thus 'Tales of Blooming Science' is treading the boards.
