About the event

This isn't a play about the German physicist, but adapts his theory to emotions. The theory goes (briefly), if you are looking at an object closely enough, it is impossible to tell in which direction and at what speed it is going. In Simon Stephens' new play, he takes this principle and applies it to two lovers: a kooky middle-aged American, and a geriatric British man.

A random encounter between two people at a train station sets this play rolling. She's a middle-aged, eccentric woman called Georgie who lies about her life to keep things interesting. He's a 75-year old butcher who lives on his own and enjoys keeping himself to himself. A total mismatch who we would think hardly spare a second glance toward each other, but mainly through her persistence do they get on.

Actors reading are the legends of Canadian theatre:

David Ferry and Kim Nelson
