The Bush Theatre in London has announced that Nick Payne’s new play Incognito will form part of its 2014 season. Joe Murphy will direct the production which runs between 14 May and 21 June 2014, after premiering at the High Tide Festival in April.
In addition to featuring a plot about the theft of Einstein’s brain during his autopsy in 1955, Incognito also deals with Henry M, whose neurosurgery for epilepsy in 1957 permitted new insights into the nature of memory. A third theme about a modern day neuropsychologist facing the breakdown of her marriage completes a trio of interwoven tales.
There will also be previews of Incognito at the Live Theatre in Newcastle 3-5 April 2014 followed by a full production later the same month.
