Directed by Doug Hughes
With Geneva Carr, Charlie Cox, Heather Lind, Morgan Spector
Previews Begin: Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Opening Night: Tuesday, May 24, 2016. Through July 10.
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.
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. Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, Outside Mullingar, The City of Conversation), Incognito takes us into the last uncharted realm—the mind.
Imagination is more
important than knowledge.
- Albert Einstein
Manhattan Theatre Club has announced complete casting for the U.S. premiere of Incognito, Nick Payne’s drama about memory and identity. Hand to God's Geneva Carr and Morgan Spector (Ironbound) join the previously announced Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) and Heather Lind (Demolition).... The four actors will play a combined 21 characters within Incognito’s three interwoven stories. The new play by the Constellations playwright will be directed by Tony winner Doug Hughes.
