The practice of relativity
The Name is the turning point of the play: Caroline and her husband find out, after going through encyclopaedias and biographies, that most of the events Caroline has experienced during her journeys had really taken place in history. During the most recent adventure Caroline was either Maria Skłodowska Curie or Irene Curie (similar to the movie "Being John Malkovich.") We have two time layers in this play: the present – here the young people live and experience travelling in time, which makes them think of the beginning of the Universe, about relativity, etc. - and the past, with some emotional moments from the life of the Curie family.
„The Practice of Relativity" is like a detective story in which at the beginning many details seem not to be connected, but at the end we find out they are all parts of one large, clear picture. The play has been written for two actors, but it is easily transferable into a drama including all the dreamed characters. The stories told by the protagonists have to be transformed into dialogs. The dialogs are very lively; the author has a pleasant sense of humour and in an unpretentious way shows us the possibility of existence in many parallel realities, or simply the unusual dream patterns and how they may penetrate our life.
