A professor, an actress, a baseball player and a senator walk into a hotel room. What happens next, didn’t. Or maybe it did. It certainly could have done – with a little imagination…
Written by two-time Olivier Award winner Terry Johnson, this hilarious and bittersweet comedy receives its first London revival in over 20 years, directed by David Mercatali (Cargo) who was nominated for the 2011 Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer Award.
Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe grapple with fame, relativity and their personal lives (when they’re not being interrupted by Joe DiMaggio and Joseph McCarthy) in this dazzlingly inventive drama about the challenges of being known, and of knowing yourself.
“One of the landmark plays of the decade” – The Guardian
“Sexy, funny, achingly sad … borders on profound genius” – The Telegraph
