The Contemporary Artists Forum is throwing in a little theater to go with the C.A.F.E. XII visual art exhibit this Sunday, September 28.

C.A.F.E. organizer Mikel Frank has arranged a one-time performance of The Scientists: A Forgetful Face at 5 p.m.

The theater work was created by Mark Costello, Sean Daniels, Eric Mercado and Evan Watkins. It is described on The Scientists website as follows:

Desperate to be the new wunderkind of the scientific community, Dr. Hermann Ebbinghaus will do anything to present at the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris. But when his aspirations of fame and fortune are foiled by his mentor-turned-nemesis Dr. Louis Pasteur, Ebbinghaus calls on his best pals Mssr. Longrais and Herr Weiss to propel him to scientific glory. Fueled by a steady stream of cocktails, fantasies of Marie Curie, and a few songs, our three unlikely heroes stumble upon a bona fide breakthrough that puts their dream within their grasp. If only they could remember to put down the scotch.
