Audio-Described Theatre Performance June 14th at Northlight Theatre in Skokie, Illinois

Northlight Theatre is offering an upcoming Touch Tour/Audio-Described performance of our current production, Relativity, a new play about Albert Einstein. 

In 1902 Albert and Mileva Einstein had a baby daughter. After 1904 she was never seen or spoken of again. Forty years later, a reporter interviews Einstein about this mysterious piece of his past, revealing shocking secrets about his family and his personal life. While the reporter questions Einstein on his theory of relativity and his decisions, she also poses a query of her own: to be a great man, does one first need to be a good man?
