Next Up: MACH 33: The Festival of New Science-Driven Plays

Axioms goes bicoastal!

Just two weeks after wrapping up with the Neurodivergent New Play Series in New York, I'll get to watch a new version of my play with an entirely new team out of Caltech. Since hearing that Axioms had been selected for the festival back in November, I have had the incredible opportunity to work with director Dr. Kevin Delin, science mentor Brenna Outten from the Emotion and Social Cognition Lab, and an unbelievable cast on turning this baby play into the play it wants to be.

Each year, Theater Arts at Caltech (TACIT) hosts a festival called MACH 33: The Festival of New Science-Driven Plays. From their website:

MACH 33 energizes the conversations about scientific, mathematical, and technological questions by staging readings of new, unpublished, unproduced plays. Festival playwrights have the unique opportunity to work with science advisors from Caltech and JPL – so we focus on plays that could benefit from this science mentorship. The readings are open to the public and present a discussion with Caltech/JPL scientific panelists after the show. Our casts and crews feature professional actors and directors as well as students and members of the Caltech/JPL community.

The stellar cast, featuring a mix of professional actors and Caltech students, includes Adela Paez, Peter James Smith, Wendy Worthington, Molly Goldstein, and Damian Musk, with stage directions and stage management by Eric Han.

This staged reading of Axioms will be performed at Caltech's Hameetman Center on March 1 at 7:00 pm.
