Are we born with an inherent personality, or are we merely an assemblage of our thoughts and recollections? In this cerebral journey through neuroscience, amnesia, and the theft of Albert Einstein’s brain, playwright Nick Payne investigates the nature of identity in a series of mysterious and touching interwoven tales.
