The Life and Times Of A Einstein
The Life and Times Of A Einstein Jun 25 - Jun 26, 2022

"The Life and Times of A. Einstein" is a funny, offbeat comedy about a day in the life of the famous scientist, as seen through the eyes of his secretary, Ellen. As his secretary, chauffeur and bodyguard (she shoots, too!), Ellen shields him from the press, keeps him on time for appointments, runs his household, and tries unsuccessfully to hide her passion and feelings for him. It's Einstein's birthday, with an ensuing press conference for him for which he is late., We never meet Einstein, but Ellen manages to explain the Theory of Relativity (hilariously oversimplified), lay out the dos and don't for journalists pending Einstein's arrival, and "vamps" her way through his life. She fields questions, evading answers and putting her own spin on those she feels are too important for the truth. It is Princeton, 1934. Einstein has just arrived there (yes, he is just learning English…..and doing quite well, thank you!) and we learn through Ellen of his colleagues, Berlin, and the life that Einstein and his wife had to leave behind. Through the course of the play, Einstein seems to be sitting right next to Ellen as she passes on her insights on one of the great minds of the 20th Century.
