    Two women covet each other’s life, commencing a game of musical chairs — the prize being someone’s husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, Gina Gionfriddo’s comedy “illuminates how hard it can be to forge both a satisfying career and a fulfilling personal life in an era that seems to demand superhuman achievement from everyone.” — NY Times.

    From Emmy nominated writer/producer of House of Cards and The Affair, Sarah Treem’s play explores divergent theories and the emotional drive of two brilliant women of science. A smart, densely textured work confronting the choices that women of every generation still face, family, and survival of the fittest. “…brims with ideas and emotional colors that eddy and refract like rivulets in a lively, plunging stream.” — WASHINGTON POST
