April 11–30, 2023
A family in the near future tries to live well (and forever?) amidst space travel, an ancient goose, and a mysterious man peddling an immortality elixir.
“Eternal Life Part 1 is inspired by questions about family, how you pass on what you have to the next generation, and the impossibility of getting everything right as a parent.” -Playwright Nathan Alan Davis
Eternal Life Part 1 is directed by Lead Artistic Director Morgan Green, who helmed the virtual production of James Ijames’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fat Ham, and features the Wilma’s HotHouse Acting Company.
