About the Play

Steve Martin's first full-length play has Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meeting at the Lapin Agile (Agile Rabbit), a bar in Montmartre, Paris in 1904.

Both are "on the verge" of amazing ideas: Einstein his theory of relativity and Picasso the pivotal painting Les Desmoiselles d'Avignon.

A lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent ensures while a grumpy Frenchman, a sympathetic barman and his not so sympathetic girlfriend, a used car salesman (oops, art dealer), a heroine, a lovable buffoon and a visitor from ??? keep all spinning.

Then there's the stage direction: "The walls of the Lapin Agile fall away and the night sky is revealed."
