Love, Einstein and the infinite possibilities.
Princeton, New Jersey. 1955. Thomas Stoltz Harvey performs the autopsy on Albert Einstein – and then steals his brain.
Bath, England. 1953. Henry undergoes pioneering brain surgery. The surgery changes Henry’s life, and the history of neuroscience.
London, England. Now. The personal life of clinical neuropsychologist Martha is rapidly becoming as complex as her professional realm.
An astonishing play about what it means to be human and the role of memory.
