Incognito archiveThe brain builds a narrative to steady us from moment to moment, but it is absolutely an illusion. There is no me, there is no you, and there is certainly no self. Princeton, New Jersey. 1955. Thomas Stoltz Harvey performs the autopsy of the recently deceased Albert Einstein. And then steals his brain. Bath, England. 1953. Henry M undergoes pioneering brain surgery. The surgery changes Henry's life, and the history of neuroscience, forever. London, England. Today. Martha is a clinical neuropsychologist. When her marriage breaks down she starts to make some radically different choices. Three interwoven stories exploring the nature of identity and how we are defined by what we remember, Incognito is a dazzling new play about what it means to be human.
