THE SECRET OF LIFE
A Science Play Series

presented by Actors Collective in partnership with MOSH
and sponsored by STAGE Fund

Actors Collective presents three plays, performed reader’s theatre style, to compliment and expand on the themes presented in Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code, MOSH’s traveling exhibition that examines the complexities of the genome — the complete set of genetic or hereditary material of a living organism — and chronicles the remarkable breakthroughs that have taken place since the completion of the Human Genome Project more than a decade ago.


THE PRESENT

THE HOW AND THE WHY

a play by SARAH TREEM
directed by CARYL BUTTERLEY

Evolution and emotion collide in this thought-provoking play about science, family, and survival of the fittest. On the eve of a prestigious conference Rachel, a young, up-and-coming evolutionary biologist with a radical new hypothesis challenges the work and life choices of an established professor, who is revealed to be her birth mother. This intimate and keenly perceptive play examines the development and progression of scientific theory, along with the difficult choices faced by women of every generation.

“A smart, densely textured work about men and women, love and conflict, genes and destiny …” — New York Times
