CHARACTERS

KAT - F, 20s, an ecologist. An explosion in a petri dish. A feminist, activist, scientist fighting her way towards her Ph.D.
HENRY - M, 20s, an astrophysicist. A logical conundrum. Privileged, socially awkward, and completely wrapped up in his research.

ABOUT THE PLAY

“Kat and Henry, two graduate students from opposing scientific disciplines, are forced to share a lab at Columbia University in 1968. Amid interpersonal differences, a campus devolving into political chaos, and the uncertainty and turmoil of the outside world, they each discover what it’s like to be thrown into someone else’s orbit.”
