The Hope Hypothesis
A New Play
Written and Directed by Cat Miller
When a law student arrives at a government facility to finalize her immigration paperwork, her unusual birth certificate triggers an absurd series of events that take on a life of their own. THE HOPE HYPOTHESIS is a dark comedy that asks how we have arrived at this place of suspicion and fear — and what it means to us as individuals and as a society.
With Michael Izquiero,* Wayne Maugans,* Alex Mickiewicz*, Clayton Dean Smith,* Chris Thorn,* Stephanie Weeks,* Annie Winneg, and Rasha Zamamiri*
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Seating is limited, so please RSVP.
