Hawking’s story is reach in all the indispensable ingredients of good affair: passion and tenderness, faithfulness and betrayal, intimacy and rejection. The only difference is a wheelchair to which the protagonist is confined.
The play’s protagonist is Stephen Hawking, (Michal Przybysz), an exceptional scientist who has been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis for 50 years.
That fact that he cannot move on his own and he uses speech synthesis to communicate with the world has neither inhibited his scientific career nor prevented him from an active participation in public life. Two different plots are alternating on the stage. The first one is scientist’s love story and the second one the theme ball that is taking place in his head. It is a living, vivid proof of the fact that the disease, that destroys protagonist’s body, leaves his mind untouched.
