When a new telescope becomes operational, the initial images it sees are called First Light. For 18 years, the EST/Sloan 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. Stay tuned to our website for updates on this year’s festival including readings, workshop roughcuts, special events, and a mainstage production!
