A Play, a Pie and a Pint

“arguably the best-value cultural event in the country”


Based on the true story of an extraordinary weekend in the life of the young Einstein, spent in Como, Italy in 1900 which changed him forever. The 21 year-old Albert has wild dreams about angels dancing on beams of light and secret passionate love-making, which would lead both to his greatest discovery, and to his greatest secret: the hidden love child whose fate would irreparably break his heart.

Featuring Finn den Hertog and Ailsa Courtney.

    The young Einstein is entranced by the beauty of conceptual physics and of physical love. But one will dominate to the detriment of the other. The dialogue, making impressive use of Einstein’s own words, clearly captures the relentless intellect expanding beyond Newton into a theory of space-time culminating in the miracle year 1905, while neglecting the mundane practicalities and inevitable consequences of living with his betrothed.
    McCartney has created her own curved world space-time-life continuum on that small stage where the two actors successfully convey the limitation of a relationship constrained by the (gravitational) distortion of time-life by genius.
