Playwrigts Foundation- Rough Reading Series: New Play by Geetha Redd

 Please join us next week as we share the latest from Geetha Reddy!

Dear Randy,

A new season is upon us and that means it’s time to kick-off the 2014/15
Rough Readings Series
with the first draft of an
as-yet-untitled play by Resident Playwright, Geetha Reddy on Mon and Tues eves, Oct 6 & 7.

The play is conceived as a wildly imaginative journey through time and space to explore the intersection between high energy physics, women in science and hindu mytholygy. Set at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, the play centers on unconventional choices made by physicist Dr. Alpheratz Schen PhD. Inspired both by Lawrence Krauss’s novel A Universe from Nothing and Reddy’s own life experience as an Ind
ian woman working in the patriarchal world of science and high tech, this play delves deeply into the role of gender, race, and power in science.

Co-commissioned with Crowded Fire Theater, this reading is the play’s first public foray on a year-long developmental process, culminating in a world premiere next year. We would be honored if you would join us for this first reading.

As always, our Rough Reading Series is Pay What You Can.

Email RSVP@playwrightsfoundation or call 415 626-2176 to reserve your spot now!This event is PAY WHAT YOU CAN.

Geetha Reddy, a multiple award winning playwright, is a Resident Playwright of Playwrights Foundation.
Join us Monday, October 6th, 7:30pm at Roble Hall, Stanford University and Tuesday, October 7th, at 7pm at The Tides Theatre, San Francisco.

 

The Deadline for new play submissions is tomorrow night (October 1st) at midnight.
