A new play about the playwright’s grandfather, Alexander S. Wiener, who discovered the Rh Factor in Blood. ?Told through the lens of interviews between the playwright and his mother, Jane Einhorn, a PhD psychologist and visual artist who had recently experienced a stroke at the time of the interviews. ?The play uses a mixture of verbatim/found text and invented dialogue to examine Wiener’s legacy, both scientific and familial. ?How does it change your life to have a world famous father…or grandfather? ?How does that legacy continue through the generations?
