Relativity - 2016 - Regional (US)

Einstein was beloved and a hero to many, but he was also a deeply complicated and difficult man. Relativity challenges our preconceived notions of who Einstein was and delivers a far more nuanced and humane understanding of the man behind the genius.

In 1902, Albert and Mileva Einstein had a baby daughter. After 1904, she was never heard from again. Years later in Princeton, when a young reporter confronts Einstein, he must face his greatest challenge: his past. Relativity explores the bonds of family and the cost of genius. Do you need to be a good man to be a great man? From the playwright that brought you Freud's Last Session, Dancing Lessons and Becoming Dr. Ruth.
