LA Theater Works: Relativity
At the center of Cassandra Medley's play Relativity is the controversial idea that higher concentrations of melanin in the genetic makeup of people of color make them mentally, physically, and spiritually dominant. Based on the scientific studies of her now-deceased father, Kalima, a fledging molecular scientist looking to come into her own, has a difficult time owning his flawed research. This production is a part of LA Theatre Works Relativity Series and features an interview with Dr. Stanley Nelson, Professor of Human Genetics and Psychiatry at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine. Starring Judyann Elder, Deidre Henry, Jason Ritter, and Lorraine Toussaint.
