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.
