In this interview from back in 2014 (shout out to the UK’s BUSH Theatre) Playwright Nick Payne describes the basic premise behind his play INCOGNITO. Second Thought Theatre opens its 2019 season with Payne’s mind bender of a play. STT’s Director of Operations and Actor Drew Wall chatted with me about opening the 15th season with the area premiere of Payne’s play, his long history with STT, and so much more!
When presented with the opportunity to study one of world’s most powerful brains, pathologist Thomas Harvey couldn’t help but take it – literally. As Harvey embarks on a quest to understand the mind that understood the universe, playwright Nick Payne (Constellations) weaves his journey into a fabric of stories centered on understanding the secrets of the human mind. Incognito’s unbelievable true stories of love, murder, memory, and the fate of Albert Einstein’s brain reveal that, like the universe itself, the human mind remains a mystery.
Here is my chat with Second Thought Theatre’s Director of Operations and Actor Drew Wall.
