Einstein and the Polar Bear

Einstein and the Polar Bear

A poignant comedy by Tom Griffin

Diane, whose car has broken down in the middle of a blizzard visits Bill, a highly regarded but reclusive novelist. Bill gives her lodging for the night, and as the evening progresses, more about Diane’s motives and Bill’s past is revealed. The two draw closer, occasionally being interrupted by colorful local townsfolk and the ramblings of Bill’s aging father, who once encountered Albert Einstein. By the story’s end, Bill is forced to confront the pain, loss and self-doubt that made him forsake his talent and the harsh realities of the world. The characters are full of salty wit, troubles and a need for each other.
