|Plot Summary of The Physicists|
|"This play is about three physicists in a mental hospital. At the start of the play, two of the three physicists have killed nurses, but, since they're insane, nobody can do much with them. One of the physicists believes he is Isaac Newton, another believes he is Einstein, and the third believes he is Mobius. As the play progresses, it is revealed that none of the physicists are insane: two are spies and the third is a genius physicist whose discoveries could change (and possibly destroy) the world. The spies each want to kidnap him, but the physicist resists, knowing the possible consequences of his discoveries."
Melissa Cookson, Resident Scholar
