In the autumn of 1954, Albert and Kurt, who resemble greatly Albert Einstein and Kurt Godel, like to walk home every afternoon from the Institute in Princeton and talk about physics, reality, time, and a variety of subjects. But something is different today. Albert needs to sit down. Kurt is obsessed with Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, which he's watched over and over again, and is troubled that he can never remember the names of all seven dwarfs. Einstein is convinced there is a dwarf named Martha. This leads to a series of increasingly funny attempts to understand the nature of time and reality and whether or not the Queen's poison apple was radioactive. Kurt is convinced that mathematicians are trying to poison his food, and that J. Edgar Hoover is putting listening devices in the rectums of squirrels. And Albert is worried about what is going to happen to the eccentric and reclusive Kurt when Albert is no longer around for him to talk to. Funny and moving.

A good companion piece to Nigro's other plays Higgs Field and Event Horizon.
