THE STORY: Evolution and emotion collide in Sarah Treem’s thought-provoking and sharp play about science, family, and survival of the fittest. On the eve of a prestigious conference, an up-and-coming evolutionary biologist wrestles for the truth with an established leader in the field. This intimate and keenly perceptive play explores the difficult choices faced by women of every generation.
“Sarah Treem’s play brims with ideas and emotional colors that eddy and refract like rivulets in a lively, plunging stream.” —Washington Post. “…an exhilarating, intellectual evening out.” —Star-Ledger. “A moving portrait of a woman meeting with equanimity an unexpected, often painful series of questions about the choices she made in the past.” —NY Times. “Two absorbing hours with two finely formed, interesting, smart, and captivating women…a very rare achievement indeed for women in and at the theatre.” —Feminist Spectator.
