Directed by Angie Toomsen
Starring Saffron Henke, Jim Kern, Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers

A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

April 14-30, 2017

In 1902, Albert Einstein's daughter was born. In 1904 she disappeared and Einstein never spoke nor wrote of her again. What happened? With playfulness and intensityRelativity imagines one theory that bridges the Einsteins: the beloved public figure to the perplexing private man and the father to the lost child. Relativity is directed by Angie Toomsen, and stars Saffron Henke (who wowed local audiences in Syringa Tree and Venus in Fur), Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers (recently seen in A View from the Bridge), and Cedar Rapids arts organization leader, director, and actor Jim Kern in his Riverside debut.

Artistic Director Sean Lewis: "A fast paced and surprising look at an intellectual giant. Like a mash-up of PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE and DOUBT, the play uses wit and intelligence to uncover possible truths."
