Henry finds it hard to remember anything, including his wife, from one minute to the next. Martha, a neuro-psychologist is changing the way she lives...and loves. Harvey has Einstein’s brain in the boot of his car. He wants to know what makes it special. These three stories form the backbone of a fast-moving play that criss-crosses time and space and asks why we behave the way we do. Eight actors play over twenty characters who have everything and nothing in common. As we get closer to the play’s surprising revelations, are we any nearer to solving the puzzle of what it means to be human?
