Mesmeric Revelation

"not to be missed!" - P. Craig, San Jose Mercury  
"unusual and engaging" - K. Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
A world premiere play inspired by a story from Edgar Allen Poe.

Paris, on the eve of the Revolution, the most learned men in the world gather at the Royal Academy of Science. Antoine Lavoisier, esteemed director of the Academy, leads an inquiry into the latest craze sweeping through French Society. The scandalous Dr. Anton Mesmer claims he can cure any patient of any illness by "mesmerizing" them  placing them in a mysterious trance-like state. Can such a claim be proven scientifically? Antoine, the "Father of Modern Chemistry," faces off against Anton, the "Wizard of Vienna," in a fiery clash of science and mysticism.
