Review Round-up: How did critics react to Physicists?
Using Jack Thorne's new version of the text, the production features John Heffernan as brilliant scientist Johann Wilhelm Möbius. Afraid of the consequences of his scientific discoveries, Möbius has voluntarily incarcerated himself in a Swiss asylum.
He is joined by two fellow phycisists who think that they are Einstein (Paul Bhattacharjee) and Newton (Justin Salinger). As the inmates murder the nurses who care for them, questions are raised about the relationship between science and destruction.
