Autism (Asperger's Syndrome)
A Pinocchio tale in reverse, presented as a fairy tale from a foreign culturethe culture of people with Asperger's Syndrome. Features puppetry and design elements inspired by the work of autistic artists.
"Painted in brash, electric colors, Weil's puppets express a surprisingly great variety of reactions with cleverly inventive minimalism. What makes the piece so effective is that Einhorn never boxes its hero in by pathologizing his Aspberger's syndrome." nytheatre.com
"Outstanding puppetry work." Hi Drama
Doctors Jane and Alexander
Ian W. Hill
Playwright Edward Einhorn takes text from his interviews with his mother, a psychologist now suffering from dementia, about his grandfather, a hematologist who discovered the Rh factor. Mixing those interviews with interviews of other relatives, his mother's doctoral thesis, a comic about his grandfather, true crime accounts, and many other sources, he creates a portrait of himself, his mother, and his grandfather, and what binds all three. It all gets interpreted through the eyes of noted downtown director Ian W. Hill.
"Alyssa Simon brings some weight to her performance as the mother; her physicalization of the woman's debility has real poignancy." nytheatre.com

Synesthesia, Eidetic Memory
The sound of the saxophone is blue. The letter O is blue. And blue tastes good. A woman describes her world, in which every sense calls up another. When the world turns gray, she must turn to her own imaginary landscape, filled with memories, to find something delicious.

As vertigo routinely attacks a former dancer stricken with Meniere's Disease, an informal conversation with his nurse turns into a revelation that challenges the idea of dependency as a passive force.
