GÖDEL

I’m very excited to announce that my new play, GÖDEL, about the mathematician Kurt Gödel, has been selected by Pulse Ensemble Theatre for development in their Playwrights Lab, a three month workshop, followed by a staged reading!

Play summary: As Julian arrives to visit his brilliant physicist friend in a psychiatric hospital in Princeton, NJ, he finds that Richard has stopped speaking. He wheedles it out of him that it is all because of Kurt Gödel, and what this man, considered the greatest logician since Aristotle and the only person that Albert Einstein considers an equal, has proved. But to understand exactly what Kurt Gödel did prove we must delve back over forty years, retracing the story of this motley crew of mathematicians and physics as they discover the secret of the first atom bomb, struggle with terrible prejudices within the scientific community, and risk madness to discover the mind of god.

GÖDEL

Here’s a first attempt at a synopsis for my new play about the mathematician Kurt Gödel:

As Julian arrives to visit his brilliant physicist friend in a psychiatric hospital in Princeton, NJ, he finds that Richard has stopped speaking. He wheedles it out of him that it is all because of Kurt Gödel, and what this man, considered the greatest logician since Aristotle and the only person that Albert Einstein considers an equal, has proved. But to understand exactly what Kurt Gödel did prove we must delve back over forty years, retracing the story of this motley crew of mathematicians and physics as they discover the secret of the first atom bomb, struggle with terrible prejudices within the scientific community, and risk madness to discover the mind of god.

If anyone would like to give it a read let me know. It’s always great to get feedback in the early stages!
