In 1987, letters between Albert Einstein and his first wife, Mileva, were discovered. The letters indicated that the couple had a daughter, born in 1902, the year before they were married. The daughter’s name was Lieserl, and there is virtually nothing known about her other than a couple of references in letters from 1903.
“No one knows what happened to her,” playwright Mark St. Germain said…
The FST director and cast have helped form the play, St. Germain said. In fact, the script wasn’t “frozen” — which essentially means finished, at least for this production — until Monday.
“I’m very pleased,” said St. Germain, who came to Sarasota from his home in Woodstock, N.Y., for this staging. “Jason Cannon is doing a great job as a director. We have actors who have helped shape the play. They’re intelligent and they’re thoughtful. This is one of the best casts I’ve ever worked with.”
