ACT I:  Experimental surgery performed on Algernon the lab mouse which increased his intelligence fourfold is tried on mentally challenged patient Charlie, who rapidly turns into a genius, far more intelligent than his teacher, Alice Kinnian, or the doctors who created the operating technique.  This is a different kind of play:  poignant, romantic, funny and tragic, but with hope of man’s indomitable spirit.

ACT II:  In 1790, after Mary Girard becomes pregnant by another man, her husband has her declared legally insane and she is committed to an asylum.  Now, Mary sits in a chair as the “furies” dance around and impersonate people from her past.
