In “The Einstein Plan”’s interactive format, a character who is simply called “The Exile” directly engages the audience and invites them to participate in creating their political future. In the second act the “Stage Manager” leads an audience discussion about whether this makes sense, and what kind of participation, if any, people feel comfortable with. The choices remain in the hearts and minds of the audience; no one is forced to do anything. The audience is simply made aware of the possibility of participating directly in our political lives, whether by merely keeping abreast of current events, baking cookies for a house meeting, or by sitting in at a government facility.

IS HE STILL DEAD?
By Donald Freed
February 8th, at 8 PM
The Irish Arts Center
553 West 51st Street
(Between 10th and 11th Ave)
"DONALD FREED IS A WRITER OF BLAZING IMAGINATION, COURAGE AND INSIGHT.
HIS WORK IS A UNIQUE AND FEARLESS MARRIAGE OF POLITICS AND ART."
“We are in the presence of an outstanding dramatic artist, one of huge intelligence,
political daring and theatrical imagination.”
[A two character Play about James and Nora Joyce]
What is fact is that in December, 1940, the Nazis were on the very heels of the audacious writer James Joyce, and by association his beloved family. He had broken all the rules, the least of which were grammatical, the most titillating of which were sexual. What is fact is that this Writer who defied all convention was the most devoted of husbands, the most loving and hearbroken of parents.
What is fact is that now pushed to the very edge of the occupied Nazi Europe, and residing precariously near Vichy France, this wounded and miraculous family had to pack up and run, like so many other, more "ordinary" families, dragging along beside them their few belongings, their one most precious possession: a small grandchild; wrenchinigly forced to leave behind their tragic mentally ill and institutionalized daughter.
What is undoubtedly true, but not factual, is how they sang and wept, ate and fought, planned, hoped, despaired, and then hoped again.
This is a play written in a private language, the love language of the man who reinvented language itself. These are his true but not factual ruminations about money, health, food, and, most important, the nurture and nature between he, James, and the Muse of his life, his beloved Nora.
Mr. Freed will take part in a Q & A immediately following the performance
