Nearest Large City:Chicago, Illinois
Play Title:Intelligent Design
Runtime:91-120 minutes
Synopsis:Set in contemporary Washington DC at the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Anthropology and Human Genome lab and surrounding locations, INTELLIGENT DESIGN examines what might happen if the White House imposed its “faith-based initiatives” onto the most hallowed institution of American scientific inquiry. In the aftermath of that event, rivalries, competition for funding and resources, discrimination, and spiritual identities all come to a head among the employees in a single NAS lab. INTELLIGENT DESIGN is a play about science, God, and basic human nature, and explores the creationism vs. evolution debate in a manner quite different from what is currently playing out in the state of Kansas and elsewhere on the national stage.
