Relativity By Cassandra Medley


Written by Cassandra Medley*
Directed by Talvin Wilks*

April 26-May 14, 2006

Race and science collide in Cassandra Medley's trenchant new drama. Claire is a melanin scientist. She believes people of color are genetically superior -- physically, mentally, in every way. Her daughter Kalima, a molecular geneticist at Johns Hopkins, knows otherwise, but to discredit her mother would destroy the relationship that each woman values the most. Forced to choose between science and family, between her future and her family, Kalima must decide where her loyalties lie.
