A stage set for two. “Paradise,” a new, two-person play by Laura Maria Censabella, tests what we think we know about science, Muslim culture and the power of mentor relationships.
Two outsiders – a gifted Yemeni-American teenager and her disillusioned biology teacher – form an unlikely scientific partnership in the hope of securing her a scholarship. But when conflicts arise over religion, science and the boundaries of mentorship, their capacity to alter the course of each other’s lives becomes greater than either had imagined.
Join Jesse and Dave in West Orange as they talk to the team behind the gripping new drama, on stage through November 19. For tickets and more information, visit http://bit.ly/LunaParadise.
