Award-winning, one-man show written by Willard Simms brings to life a brilliant, dedicated and sometimes controversial theoretical physicist who TIME Magazine called their Person of the Century.
THE SETTING: The year is 1946, the Bomb has been dropped, the world has forever changed and Albert Einstein has invited the audience over to his home to set the record straight about his life. Join Dr. Einstein for an evening of humor, introspection, science and a little violin. Find out why his theories are being proven correct to this day. Youâll walk away with an understanding of the man who solved many of the worldâs most difficult puzzles with astounding creativity and a delicious sense of humor. ABOUT THE PLAY: Einstein was âa much too famous man whose reputation grew so out of proportionâ. He was a reluctant celebrity who set the science world on its collective ear at the astonishing age of twenty six with his Special Theory of Relativity. His passion was deciphering natureâs puzzle and spent his entire life âtrying to fit the pieces togetherâ. Yet, he didnât begin speaking until the age of three and was considered to be a slow learner by his teachers. He abhorred all forms of authority which made his school years difficult and finding work as an adult even harder. Despite all that, not a day passes when we fail hear some reference to Albert Einstein.
