Meet Henry Molaison, or, as some may know him better, Patient HM – “the man who taught the world so much without ever knowing it”.

In 1953, Henry underwent an experimental brain surgery, hoping to cure the epilepsy that impacted his young life. The operation, however, left Henry unable to form new memories making him the most famous patient in the history of brain science.

Winning a coveted Fringe First Award for Analogue Theatre Company in 2011, 2401 Objects creates an imagined life of Henry Molaison based on a number of important factual events, to include human connection to his story. Our Auckland production reaches deeper into Henry, portraying him beyond the subject of medical inquisition, bringing human connection to his story and sharing Henry’s perspective with the world.

Come hear his story, or what little is known about it.

Show Times:

Thursday 20 May: 8pm

Friday 21 May: 8pm

Saturday 22 May: 2:00pm

Saturday 22 May: 8pm

We want to make this experience available for as many people who might enjoy this show, so the matinee is a relaxed performance. All income from the matinee will be donated to Headway.

Venue: The Drama Studio, The University of Auckland 206-325 Level 3 of the Humanities Building.

Parking is available underneath the Owen G Glenn Building. The OGGB car parking charges a $6 flat fee on weekends and for parking after 5pm.
