About this show

Connection Theatre Company presents its 2005 Summer Reading Series, featuring six ten-minute plays presented as staged readings, and inspired by the documentary The Journey of Man. Melissa Attebery directs, with live music by Reid Taylor. "By analyzing DNA from people in all regions of the world, geneticist Dr. Spencer Wells has concluded that all humans alive today are descended from a single man who lived in Africa around 60,000 years ago. Wells addresses this and other issues in a book, The Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey, and a National Geographic documentary of the same title. In a straightforward story, he explains how he traced the exodus of modern humans from Africa by analyzing genetic changes in DNA from the y-chromosome." - Hillary Mayell for National Geographic News Plays include: Discovering Rootbeer by Jason Powell Gravity Is the Biggest Lie by Phil Schmiedl Unlike Here on Earth by Cheryl Games Mooning 34th Street by Christine Bruno Relativity by Mrinalini Kamath The Big Wave by Aurin Squire
