**** Highly Recommended **** A confrontation between an adult child and an aging parent is meat and potatoes to a playwright. There are two things setting Northlight Theatre’s “Relativity”, apart – the parent, Albert Einstein; the actor playing him, Mike Nussbaum. In 1902, Mileva Einstein, while visiting her parents, gave birth to a daughter. When she returned to her husband, she didn’t bring the baby. What happened to that daughter? Playwright Mark St. Germain took that question and turned it into a gripping drama. 4 Spotlights
