_M_jan16 M staged reading by Jeannie Barroga directed by Norman Gee

Wednesday January 16 7:30 pm - suggested donation $10+

with Lisa Hori-Garcia, Tessa Koning-Martinez*, Jed Parsario, Tony Williams (as Einstein) Throckmorton Theater, 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley, CA

"Can Love Be Reduced To an Equation?" Using Einstein's unfinished unified field theory (and noodling with alternate realities), physics grad student Jason toils over a thesis about string theory while alternate realities clash, Pasts and Presents intermingle, and What-Ifs are unified. All the while, a pajama-clad Albert Einstein narrates.

The Commissioning and Production of this World Premiere is made possible by The Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Playwright Collaboration Awards 2009 Initiative With Additional Funding from Applied Materials Foundation


The World Premiere of Buffalo'ed retells the story of the Buffalo Soldiers, descendants of American slaves, who were stationed in the Philippines at the turn of the 20th Century, during both the Spanish-American and Philippine-American Wars. The military presence of the United States Army's Buffalo Soldiers' during the Philippine occupation is a little-known thread in the fabric of American history. It is an American story told through dialogue and movement.
