The Equation

In our time of soaring unemployment, sketchy Wall Street practices, and increasingly vast income polarity, the examination of a capitalistic economy and what it does to humanity asks to be explored. Originally commissioned by the UNITAS Theatre Co. of Los Angeles who felt the plays themes were too controversial for a new company, the workshop was produced nevertheless by the cast and crew and since revised by its author. Told through reverse chronology in Depression-era New York City with layered scenes in a nearby town house one generation later, THE EQUATION engages the audience in a "how-done-it" about a birth rather than a death. This period "play of excavation" reveals a physician and his wife who attempt to adopt the infant son of a Russian woman desperate to give her child a shot at the American Dream glittering impossibly beyond her grasp.

    Sorry for the confusion about the address. I swear it GM gave me a Kirkland address yesterday. There are several Trinity churches in Kirkland. gMaps appears to be giving the correct directions now. I still can't go due to other arrangements.

    Susanna - I've been to this theater several times. It's not in Kirkland.

    Sorry, I should have double checked the address earlier. I thought this church was downtown, but it is in Kirklsnd. Can't make it in time.

    I'm sorry, when I glanced at the address posted and saw Seattle, I assumed this church was downtown - but when I checked for directions on Google maps just now, I discovered it is in Kirkland. That's too far for me to go. gotta cancel.

    hoping to hear from someone able to find review of the play - above mentions 'sketchy Wall Street practices & capitalistic economy - and below describes an adoption... so, i'm puzzled about the weaving of this connection - any comments would be appreciated as this plot is not clear to me... thanks
