SBU Science on Stage
Three Stony Brook University scientists opened up to three professional playwrights to discuss their work, their careers, and some of the challenges they face as scientists.
The playwrights, inspired by the stories and the science, each created a short, one-act play to be shared live online with audiences from around the world. The performances will be followed by a panel discussion with the scientists and the writers about the intersection of science and art, and the process of their collaboration.
This event was presented with support from The Kavli Foundation.
All plays were directed by Meredith McDonough
