About this show

Hypnotic and mysterious is the human brain. The Man Who, by Peter Brook, Marie Hélène Estienne and Oliver Sacks, is an imaginative and moving adaptation of case histories about brain-damaged individuals from Oliver Sacks' book A Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. On the stage it becomes an exhilarating and remarkable exploration of impaired minds performed by an ensemble of four actors. Instead of a sense of dread, we experience a sense of wonder at the implicit connection between their world and ours. Magical, funny, inspiring and heroic, The Man Who masters a complex subject with poetry, beauty and simplicity. Wesley Savick directs.

Additional performance Saturday April 22 at 3pm.
