What is the nature of the universe? Why are scientists so different, and yet so not-different-at-all? Why is Stephen Hawking giving the shiteye to that giant pile of pancakes? Very few of these questions will be answered satisfactorily this Sunday.
For the fourth year in a row, Youngblood and the EST/Sloan Project are getting together to present the YOUNGBLOOD SCIENCE BRUNCH. Five brand new short plays about science and scientists, which ponder the big questions of the universe. Or, in many cases, don't. Because, unlike scientists, playwrights are extremely distractible.
Join us for the kick off event of First Light 2011.
