American Premiere by Nick Payne
Directed by Doug Hughes
Featuring Geneva Carr, Charlie Cox, Heather Lind, Morgan Spector
Four actors play a combined 21 characters within Incognito’s three interwoven stories. A pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend. Incognito braids these mysterious stories into one breathtaking whole that asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions.
Nick Payne, the acclaimed writer who brought you the sold-out Broadway sensation Constellations, returns to Manhattan Theatre Club with Incognito, an “astonishing and original” (The Telegraph) American premiere play.
Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, Outside Mullingar, The City of Conversation), Incognito takes us into the last uncharted realm—the mind.
Running time: 85 minutes with no intermission.
Production support for Incognito is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of the MTC/Sloan Science Theatre Initiative.
