Love, Genius and a Walk
Love, Genius and a Walk is a play that shows how art and marriage can make odd bedfellows. Gustav Mahler, world-renowned composer and conductor, wants his wife to be his muse, but Alma desires a closeness that he cannot give, he thinks, in order to get his work done. Mahler turns to the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud for guidance, and both men find that neither of them may be that clued up about women. At the same time, a modern couple’s life mirrors Alma and Mahler’s except here she is the artist who works all the time and their conundrum is a commercially- oriented husband whose thoughts on art can be a touch confounding. The two stories twist and turn through the quagmires of love and genius, much of it to the sweeping music of Mahler.
