First Light Festival 2019: 20 Years of New Plays Celebrating Science

Since 1998, the EST/Sloan Project has developed 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, an annual presentation of new readings, workshops, and a Mainstage Production. Share a first look at our newest projects during this season’s First Light Festival.
