Radio Galaxy, a new play by Michele Aldin Kushner, will receive an invitation-only reading on Thursday, September 27, and Friday, September 28, at the Westside Theatre. The reading will be directed by Mark Waldrop and produced by Margot Astrachan.
Radio Galaxy will feature Joey McIntyre, Lesli Margherita, Hari Dhillon, and Nandita Shenoy.
The play is described as follows: "Tino is a 17-year-old science prodigy from a hard-working, blue-collar family, who dreams of university and a career in astronomy. Tino's parents tried for so long to have a child, and finally were able through a sperm donor. Unexpectedly, the biological father, Raju, an astrophysicist and academic, enters Tino's life. Raju and his wife, Daya, have a life-altering request of Tino. The class and racial tensions provoked by the stakes and potential risks of the request spark conflicts between the two families as Tino, and his dreams hang in the balance. But so does the life of a child."
