staged reading: March

i'm directing a staged reading for fertile ground! it's a play at the intersection of art and science, one of my favorite places. it's a complex script with a strong female protagonist created by a female playwright.

Margery Dawson is a neuroanatomist, a PhD in how the brain works. But hers isn't. Hers is having a stroke. And though she's too busy to have one, and certainly too busy for history, family, or a relationship, all of them are happening. Right here, right now.
Described as fugue for three voices, MARCH is a play that looks at an experience as the brain does. Seemingly disjointed, but perhaps the most accurate description of what truly happened.
and this is the video that inspired the play!
Sounds highly interesting, gl. Excited you are doing this.

I've always loved that TED talks video! One of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. And the description of the play sounds very intriguing - a fugue for three voices... I can almost hear it already. The perfect way to approach it I think.
