Join us for a new play by Edward Einhorn (Arts & Sciences '92) about his grandfather, Alexander S. Wiener, who discovered the Rh Factor in blood in 1937. The play is told through the lens of interviews with his mother, Jane Einhorn, a Ph.D. psychologist and visual artist who had recently experienced a stroke at the time of the interviews. The play uses a mixture of verbatim/found text and invented dialogue to examine Wiener's legacy, both scientific and familial. How does it change your life to have a world famous father...or grandfather? How does that legacy continue through the generations?
This will be the Untitled Theater Company No. 61's first production at HERE since The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein in 2017, which received a Critic's Pick from Jesse Green at The New York Times. The performance will feature Alyssa Simon as Jane, who was described as "radiant," when she played Toklas in the earlier production.
Following the performance, we will gather for a talk with the playwright, Edward Einhorn, and Dr. Pablo Rubenstein, a former colleague of Alexander Wiener's who was involved in the early days of blood typing. They'll discuss Edward's grandfather and the science that came after the discovery.
