A love affair with a pigeon, a shakedown with Mark Twain, an enormous disco DJ’d by Thomas Edison-- this genre-bent, cross-experimental three act play launches two scientific giants into a new light: Nikola Tesla, the troubled genius and fallen inventor whose patents and inventions now worth billions were stolen from under him, and Thomas Edison, the famous inventor and infamous crook who coordinated the entire slandering attack but to this day gets all the credit.
