–––Edison served as my senior thesis at the University of the Arts. The three-act cross experimental play launches two scientific giants into a new light: Nikola Tesla, the troubled genius and fallen inventor whose patents and inventions now worth billions were stolen from under him, and Thomas Edison, the famous inventor and infamous crook who coordinated the entire slandering attack but to this day gets all the credit.
