ACANSA does more than just present the annual festival in September. They are kicking off their 2019 programming with the one man play Einstein! ~ Celebrating 100 Years of General Relativity
This award-winning one-man show has it all: as dramatic as it is funny, as uplifting as it is contemplative, Albert Einstein comes to life before your very eyes. This solo play is written and performed by Jack Fry and directed by Tom Blomquist.
This is the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed show that has over 150 performances under its belt. This 80-minute show is designed for a general audience and has played in many venues around the country. Einstein comes back from the beyond.
Frustrated that no one has heard the real science history behind General Relativity, Albert takes us back to Berlin in 1914 where he is sent sideways in a world crumbling around him due to The Great War, colleagues trying to steal his theories, being isolated for his pacifist views, a wife who won’t give him a divorce, his failing health, a huge scientific backlash, anti-Semitism, his own self destructive genius, and his 10-year old son fighting for his father’s affections. Told with humor, 3D graphics that help give us an insight to his brilliant mind, Albert Einstein comes to life as Jack Fry revitalizes one of the most intriguing icons of all time.
The program will be at the Argenta Community Theatre. Doors open at 6pm, the performance starts at 7pm. Tickets are $30.
