Relativity-Nicholas-Papademetriou-as-Albert-EinsteinRiverside Theatres is thrilled to announce that Joining the Dots Theatre Co. will be bringing their hugely popular 2022 production, Relativity by Mark St Germain to Parramatta for a limited season from 10 May 2023.

These days Albert Einstein is as famous for his quotable quotes and his flagrant disregard for combs as he is for his outstanding contribution to physics.

But what do we actually know of the man under the white hair? Does the private life of such a publicly acknowledged genius matter? Relativity asks the question: to be a great man, does one first need to be a good man?

This phenomenal play will once again be directed by Johann Walraven and stars Nicholas Papademetriou (Freud’s Last Session, Clock and Spiel Productions), Nisrine Amine (Lady Tabouli, Griffin Theatre Co) and Alison Chambers (Babette’s Feast, Joining the Dots Theatre Co).

St Germain is known for plays that place historical figures into imagined circumstances (such as Freud’s Last Session). The truth is that in 1902 Albert and Mileva Einstein had a daughter but after 1904, the child was never seen or spoken of again.

The play opens in 1942 with a journalist coming to interview Einstein but is he more interested in the public theories or the very private man? Relativity has St Germain’s winning trademark combination of intelligence, wit and heart.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
