As part of Lincolnshire's Age of Scientific Discovery, the Grantham Dramatic Society embarked on a project exploring Newton's time as Master of the Royal Mint. Working with professional writer Andy Barrett from theatre company Excavate, the group researched, developed and wrote a play on this theme. Dr Graham Dyer, curator of the Royal Mint Museum kindly hosted a special research session for the group.
