The Physicists

August 7 - August 18 | Center Stage
2007 Season

Author: Durrenmatt , Friedrich
Director: O'Rourke, Kevin

In association with the Williams College Summer Theatre Lab. Three inmates at the Cherry Trees Sanatorium believe themselves to be world famous physicists: Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Johann Mobius. But are they indeed insane? And what are their actual identities: madmen, murderers or scientists? Durrenmatt’s 1962 comedy is a provocative examination of the impact of nuclear science on global power and the moral tolls of sanity.
