Event Notes


A pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend. INCOGNITO braids these mysterious stories into one breathtaking whole that asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions.

Come see eight local performers take to the Magnus Theatre Mainstage in the very first play to be performed by our community acting class, The Actor's Studio!

Press for Incognito, by Nick Payne:

“…tantalizing…[a] lively, self-examining drama of ideas…Mr. Payne makes it clear that science and sentimentality need not be mutually exclusive…as befits a work about the vagaries of memory, Mr. Payne’s multilayered works remain in your mind, challenging our most fundamental notions of autonomous selfhood.” —The New York Times.

“[INCOGNITO] is likely to send you out of the theatre working out the puzzle. And keep you thinking for days after…highly recommended, thought-provoking, impressive and entertaining.” —The Huffington Post.

“…at the top of its class…clever and poignant…one of [Payne’s] great gifts is the ability to poignantly meld complicated philosophic and scientific tenets with simpler human struggles.” —The Guardian (US).
