The World is Flat and Small: Bruce Robinson

This past Thursday I attended an event for Caltech alumni in New York City. This was only the third or so time I had done so. The most recent was a few years back when the alumni attended as a group a performance of a play about R. P. Feynman in which Alan Alda played the title role.

I was sipping a glass of wine when I asked the man standing to me if he had gone to Caltech. He said that he had not, but had attended a choral school near Princeton, New Jersey.

When I asked him what he did, he said he was an agent for playwrights.

I said that one my relatives was the playwright Bruce Robinson.

He said he was Bruce’s agent and reached over to shake my hand.

Q.E.D.
