A mysterious and beautiful new play

Four actors play 21 characters in interwoven stories.

Rubicon Theatre Company presents the West Coast premiere of Incognito, a mysterious and beautiful new play that has dazzled audiences in London and New York. Written by award-winning playwright Nick Payne (Constellations), Incognito speaks to our yearning to know ourselves and our desire to be known by others.

Four actors play 21 characters in interwoven stories (some based on true events) about memory and identity. Thomas Harvey steals Einstein’s brain in hopes of discovering the elusive nature of genius. Henry loses his memory after an operation, but recalls his deep affection for his wife, whom he greets anew each time she comes into the room. Martha is a scientist who understands the working of the mind but struggles in matters of the heart.

A Critic’s Pick in the New York Times, the play was described as “ingenious, remarkable and tantalizing.” The Telegraph called Incognito “astonishing” and “original.” Directed by Katharine Farmer (The Nibroc Trilogy), Incognito previews on Sept. 13-15 and opens Saturday, Sept. 16 at 7:00 p.m. at Rubicon Theatre followed by an after-party with the cast at Rhumb Line Restaurant in the Ventura Harbor. The show continues through October 1.
