In this award-winning, one-man show (Dramalogue, Best Playwright) playwright Willard Simms brings to life a brilliant, dedicated and sometimes controversial theoretical physicist who TIME magazine called their Person of the Century. Einstein was “a much too famous man whose reputation grew so out of proportion”. 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 nature’s puzzle and spent his entire life “trying to fit the pieces together”. Yet, he didn’t 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.
