Science Play Streaming for Free
The Ensemble Studio Theatre in partnership wtih the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is streaming Sam Chanse's new play what you are now for free. It will be available on the EST website from September 8-25. Directed by Steve Cosson, the play stars Sonnie Brown, Curran Connor, Emma Kikue, Robert Lee Leng, and Pisay Pao.
About the play: "Pia is a passionate young researcher investigating cutting-edge new ideas about how to heal the mind from traumatic memories. But her interest is also personal, deeply intertwined with her family’s history. When a figure from the past unexpectedly shows up, urging Pia’s mother to testify about her experiences during the violence of 1970s Cambodia, unresolved histories are brought to the surface. Pia must navigate through a latticework of interconnected memories: her relationship, her brother Darany and, centrally, her mother Chantrea—making discoveries that will radically alter everyone’s lives in the present."
