Synopsis of Play: ONE STONE is a passionate, historically-based love story between two scientists – one who became internationally famous, and one who disappeared in a cloud of depression and mental illness. It is a true story about the sexual, emotional and intellectual relationship between Albert Einstein and the physicist Mileva Marić – his first wife. It dramatizes the uncredited role she played in Einstein’s great conceptual achievements, and raises questions about how gender affects the success or failure of talent. It is a historical play which leads us to ask if it is any easier for women in science today.
