The Ensemble Studio Theatre/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project has led a pioneering nationwide effort to commission, develop, and present hundreds of new plays that question and broaden the view of science in the popular imagination. Each play’s life onstage begins with the First Light festival. Join us for this year’s discoveries.
Created from interviews, testimony, court documents, and media accounts collected in the aftermath of the spill, SPILL follows the story of the 2010 explosion on board the oilrig Deepwater Horizon and the devastating impact of the 87-day spill on the coastal communities and marine life of Louisiana.
