Enter the brave new world of genetic mapping and profiling, and the controversy that arises when it is applied to issues of race. Kalima, a brilliant young African-American biogeneticist, finds her cutting-edge research bringing her into ideological conflict with her mother, Claire, who runs a foundation dedicated to “melanin science”. Claire fervently believes that the pigment melanin makes African-Americans genetically superior. The stage is set for a fascinating exploration of the divide between the methodologies of Western science and more faith-based analyses of our biological blueprints. L.A. Theatre Works produced RELATIVITY for its Relativity Series of science-themed plays, funded in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to enhance public understanding of science and technology. Includes an interview with Dr.Stanley Nelson, Professor of Human Genetics and Psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
