"Einstein's Wife" ran March 5-12, 2020 at ATLAS Performing Arts Center

Einstein's theory of relativity revolutionized modern science and his name became synonymous with genius. Lesser known is the story of Mileva Maric, the physicist, mathematician, and fellow student at Zurich Polytechnic who was Einsteinís first wife. As recently discovered personal correspondence suggests, Mileva contributed substantially to his scientific success yet received no professional credit. In this gripping production, Serbian playwright Snezena Gnjidic and English translator Milena Trobozic Garfield present a thoughtful portrait of the coupleís tumultuous relationship and her role in developing his ground-breaking ideas. What started as a scientific team eventually was derailed by motherhood and a world not prepared for women's professional achievements. "Einsteinís Wife" explores the life of a gifted woman living in the shadow of a brilliant man.
