This delightful comedy, originally performed at The Mark Taper Forum, presents a unique glimpse of a day in the life of the great scientist as seen through the eyes of his secretary, Ellen. The scene is Princeton, New Jersey, 1934. It is Einstein’s birthday, and a group of journalists (played by you, the audience) has gathered in his living room to interview him at his home as he turns 55. As usual, Einstein is late and his devoted secretary, Ellen, stalls by fielding questions, placating and humoring the reporters, explaining his theories, all the while attempting to keep the chaotic household running smoothly.

KRES MERSKY is a Los Angeles based actor and playwright known for her highly acclaimed one-person shows THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A. EINSTEIN, BIP THREE TIMES, NUTS n CHEWS, and ISADORA DUNCAN: A UNIQUE RECITAL. Mersky has performed extensively throughout California, the West Coast and Canada. Her full-length plays, one-acts, and monologues have played to audiences in New York and Los Angeles, as well as up and down the West Coast in theaters, universities, libraries and performing arts centers. Mersky has had a long career on stage, film and television. She was a regular on the Richard Pryor Show, the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and The Robert Klein Show. In addition, she has been a recurring guest on numerous episodic television shows. She is excited to be performing her show here tonight.

PAUL GERSTEN, director, has been a successful theater and commercial director in Los Angeles as well as an advertising photographer for the past 30 years. He has directed and toured with Mersky as she performed all of her shows. Presently, they are working together to present Nuts n Chews and Bip Three Times for theatrical presentation. Both are compilations of short one-acts and monologues written by Mersky.
