In Informed Consent by Deborah Zoe Laufer, an ambitious geneticist is hired to help figure out why a Native American tribe is being devastated by diabetes. However, her research threatens to destroy the tribe's most sacred traditions. With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, Informed Consent explores the question of just how much knowledge is too much. And who gets to decide?
Note: This play was inspired by the case of Havasupai Tribe vs. the Arizona Board of Regents. Each performance is followed by a reception with the actors in the gallery.
