Mach 33 Continues

Last night the Mach 33 Festival presented a wonderful reading of my play Bones of the Sea at Pasadena Playhouse.

The entire cast did an excellent job, which was largely a tribute to Satya Bhabha, who directed the piece. Afterward, we had a great conversation with the audience over in the Friendship Room next to the theatre. Dramaturg Kate Langsdorf was there for that, as was our science adviser, Alistair Hayden.

Today at noon, I'll be speaking at a symposium along with Alistair and the other playwrights and science advisers. If you're interested in coming, it will be held in the Hameetman Center, Frautschi Hall on the campus of Caltech. We will be discussing the function of art in collaborative engagement with science and technology.

We also had a great article about the festival published in the Pasadena Weekly. Tonight, Susan Bernfield's play Sizzle, Sizzle, Fly is being presented, and then tomorrow Kristin Idaszak's The Surest Poison.

You can get tickets here, and you'll get a discount if you use the code: CALTECH.
