A fascinating and thought-provoking play about science, family and the survival of the fittest. Emotions collide when, on the eve of a prestigious conference, an up-and-coming 28-year-old evolutionary biologist wrestles for the truth with an established leader in the field, 56-year-old Zelda Kahn. The air crackles between the eminent professor and the maverick graduate student, whose theories might just change the way we regard sex itself. This intimate and keenly perceptive play grapples with the difficult choices faced by women of every generation. Directed by Nancy Bell. Cast: Amy Loui* and Sophia Brown (*member AEA)
