The How and the Why Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater
THE HOW AND THE WHY By Sarah Treem Directed by Shirley Serotsky February 15 — March 12, 2017
By the writer of hit TV shows In Treatment and The Affair, this exhilarating and keenly perceptive play about science, family, and survival of the fittest grapples with the choices faced by women of every generation. Emotion and evolution collide on the eve of a prestigious conference when an up-and-coming evolutionary biologist wrestles for the truth with an established leader in the field.
The air crackles between the eminent professor and the maverick graduate student, whose theories might just change the way we regard sex itself. “Beautifully toned, thoroughly fascinating” – The Chicago Tribune
