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.
EST has presented the Marathon, its celebrated festival of new one-act plays, for over 30 years. It is the longest-running, most celebrated one-act play festival in the country. Stay tuned for this year's full lineup – three days, fifteen plays.
Please note that current performance dates are not final.
Pull out your Erlenmeyer flask, turn on your bunsen burner, reread your biography of Marie Curie, and join us the first Sunday in March for five new plays celebrating science by the writers of Youngblood, as well as pancakes, bacon and (young)bloody marys!
