Published by Faber & Faber

2 Male 2 Female

"The brain builds a narrative to steady us from moment to moment, but it is absolutely an illusion. There is no me, there is no you, and there is certainly no self"

Princeton, New Jersey - 1955

Thomas Stoltz Harvey performs the autopsy on Albert Einstein

And then steals his brain

Bath, England - 1953

Henry undergoes pioneering brain surgery

The surgery changes Henry's life

And the history of neuroscience

London, England - the Present

Martha is a clinical neuropsychologist

When her marriage breaks down she starts to make radically different choices

These three interwoven stories examine the nature of identity and how we are defined by what we remember

Incognito is an exhilarating exploration of what it means to be human

Runs about 90 minutes


"Two years ago, Payne won copious awards for Constellations, to which this new play bears a passing resemblance in its exploration of identity and free will. I happen to think Incognito is a better play in its formal ingenuity and intellectual adventurousness" ~ Michael Billington, The Guardian

"This is shiningly brilliant, a meditation on neuroscience, memory, deception, heredity and identity: alive with compassion and wonder, streaked with intelligent humour..." ~ Libby Purves, theatreCat
