Princeton, New Jersey. 1955. Thomas Stoltz Harvey performs the autopsy of the recently deceased 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, forever. London, England. Today. Martha is a clinical neuropsychologist. When her marriage breaks down she starts to make some radically different choices.
These three stories interweave to explore the nature of identy and how our memory defines what we are. This brand new play makes us question exactly what it means to be human.
