Johann Mobius, the world's greatest physicist, is locked away in a madhouse along with two other scientists. Why? Because he is haunted by recurring visions of King Solomon, and the other two are convinced they are Einstein and Newton. But are these three actually mad? Or are they playing a murdererous game with the world at stake?

This darkly comic satire probes the cost of sanity among men of science and whether it is the mad who are the truly sane.

    " Cool. I guess I expected it to be a bit more absurd. "

    " This is a good, solid comedic mystery about crazy people. And you thought Germans had no sense of humor! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerome | 1/31/2014

    " I read this, Die Physiker, in the original German along with Der Ricther Und Sein Henker and some of his short stories. I like his style. "

    " My favorite quote was "In all the world there's nothing more absurd than a woman's frantic desire for self-sacrifice." It's the kind of quote that gives my sister diarrhea. "

    " About the responsibility that comes with great power. But not strength is meant here, but power of the mind, able to invent something that could destroy everything. Meanwhile absurdly hilarious. Great play. "

    " it's completely insane! good turnig points, you never expect what happens next! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 André | 7/20/2013

    " We had to read this book in school, and it's actually one of the few books that I really, really, really liked. I read it in a single day, because it was so thrilling and totally not like the usual books one has to read for school. And I don't think it's just because it's about Physicists. ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross | 4/19/2013

    " Absolutely brilliant! I'm going to read it again tonight. "And to think for this I had to strangle a nurse and learn German!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gijs | 5/24/2012

    " Toneelstuk met eenheid van plaats en tijd over drie fysici in een inrichting. Stapelt ontknoping op ontknoping en verandert van erg grappig gaandeweg naar grimmig, met een troosteloos einde. Mooi! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sunleister | 8/26/2011

    " Had to read it 3 times in school but enjoyed it every time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aathavan | 9/22/2010

    " A madhouse with three physicists claiming to be Einstein, Newton and Mobius! This wonderful premise for the play is squandared and it does not exploit the richness that these characters could provide and instead wastes it on banalities. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilson | 8/4/2010

    " Great stuff. If you've got a beach weekend of physics and nurse-strangling planned, put this book in your tote! "
