QED

by Peter Parnell

June 19 – July 18, 2004

Synopsis

Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman holds forth with captivating wit and wisdom in this fascinating play. Considered the best mind since Einstein, he helped develop the atomic bomb, exposed the O-ring failure on the Challenger rocket and broke new ground in the field of quantum electrodynamics (QED). Eccentric to the extreme, his personal life was filled with eclectic interests – including playing the drums, frequenting topless bars, sketching nude models and acting in amateur theatricals.

Inspired by the writings of Richard Feynman and Ralph Leighton’s Tuva or Bust!
