WHAT

University Players presents “An Experiment with an Air Pump” by Shelagh Stephenson

A Provocative Drama
Beginning in 1799, on the eve of a new century, a Northern English house buzzes with scientific experiments and furtive romance. In 1999, in a world of scientific chaos, cloning and genetic engineering, the cellar of the same house reveals a dark secret buried for 200 years.

Inspired by the painting “An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump” by Joseph Wright, multi-award-winning Stephenson gives us an intelligent, emotionally powerful drama – part detective story, part science play – that skillfully brings us into the debate, “How far will you go for the sake of science?”

“…an extremely thought provoking tragic comedy with a bit of mystery thrown in.” – Bill Gorman, Centerstage.net
