Nikola Tesla was, perhaps, the most brilliant inventor of the 19th and 20th centuries; the discovery of electricity, radio, and several technologies that – if ever brought to fruition – could prove even more revolutionary. His life was tragic, but in Dice’s play the tables are turned. The first two thirds closely follow history, but the last part of the play shows the future Tesla should have had – a better future, in which Susan B Anthony is President of the United States, and Thomas Edison admits that Tesla is the better scientist.
Roles include Tesla, Edison, George Westinghouse, financier Andrew Carnegie, Marie Curie, manners maven Emily Post, and a host of newsies, ditch diggers and talking pigeons, and more.
