Tesla is a theatrical journey into Nikola Tesla's unlimited imagination in the final years of his life. Living alone and in relative obscurity in a hotel bedroom, he desperately develops his particle beam to save his beloved Yugoslavia from the Nazi Luftwaffe. He draws on the intellectual strength of his youth when he was the most celebrated and controversial inventor in America. Even back in the Roaring Nineties, when New York was aglow with electrical invention and his beloved Katherine was alive, could he have had the power to fight man's combative instinct? Is the only difference between war and the nineteenth century robber barons that people suffer and die more quickly?
