About the Play: In the intimate setting of the one-man play, this heartfelt stage production details the scientific, spiritual, and emotional aspects of a scientist, physicist, engineer and inventor who dedicated his life to the betterment of the human race with the production of electric power.The play takes audience back to January 1943, where we find Nikola Tesla alone and impoverished in a hotel room in New York talking to the pigeons on the windowsill. Throughout the play, he recounts his life in a stream-of-consciousness flow of memories. Tesla, the inventor of alternating current (AC), radio, wireless energy transmission (who foresaw the future of wireless phones), looks over the city and tells the audience, "New York, a magical city of light, electrified by my alternating current system?Yet, you should have had all this without the wires. Unlimited, boundless energies of the ether benefiting all mankind.Tesla is played by American actor Frank Tabbita who already has had a number of successful performances of this play in USA, Europe, Australia and Vancouver.Organized by: Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Toronto Section
