Mr Tesla Played

...and electrified the world Foreningen Why Not Theatre Company


Mr Tesla Played is the story of a deeply fascinating man and his drive, inventiveness and need to create. It is about his self-control, altruism and his eccentric and principled lifestyle. It is also the story of the loneliness and isolation an inventive soul can experience, when the scale of his ambition is way ahead of his time.

Nikola Tesla, who is claimed by many to be the true father of the electric age, is the classic unsung hero.

Mr Tesla Played is a monologue performed in an intimate setting, allowing the audience to get up close and personal with Tesla. We tell the story of how the smart guys don’t always win against the less smart.
