Professional actors. Professional productions.

In 1902, Albert Einstein's daughter was born. In 1904 she disappeared and Einstein never spoke nor wrote of her again. What happened? With playfulness and intensityRelativity imagines one theory that bridges the Einsteins: the beloved public figure to the perplexing private man and the father to the lost child. Relativity is directed by Angie Toomsen, and stars Saffron Henke (who wowed local audiences in Syringa Tree and Venus in Fur), Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers (recently seen in A View from the Bridge), and Cedar Rapids arts organization leader, director, and actor Jim Kern in his Riverside debut.
