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.
