See this world premiere production before it transfers Off-Broadway in the Fall! Come laugh and “aha” your way through a series of interwoven short plays about some of our favorite countries and the four things we think we know about them. Based on a mix of facts and "facts" what could go wrong in this fast-paced, irreverent tour de force of the globe? Probably everything.

Princeton, 1955: a scientist steals Einstein's brain hoping to unlock superhuman intelligence. London, 2012: a psychologist decides to start her life over and finds herself in over her head. Bath, England, 1953: after an experimental surgery gone awry, a man spends the rest of his days re-living the blissful moment he got engaged. Four actors play all 21 characters in this charming and exhilarating play that weaves three stories together, asking us if memory and identity are simply illusions.
