The world premiere of Bruce Coughran’s ‘a Time for Hawking’ opened at Berkeley City Club on Dec. 23, 2018. The play follows three young people at a New Years Eve party in early 1963, one of whom is a 20 year-old Stephen Hawking. As the evening progresses, the questions about not only Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity, but also poetry, Hindu mythology, opera, croquet, and the nature of time are discussed, and the questions become unexpectedly personal. In the end, with a little Champagne and a little dancing maybe the answers will come out. But regardless, none of them will be the same again. The play runs through January 13, 2019. It was listed as a “pick of the week” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
