How the World Began by Catherine Trieschmann
In this provocative, intelligent, and deeply felt play, a Manhattan woman travels to a rural town in Kansas recently devastated by a tornado to take a teaching job in a makeshift high school. But when she makes an off-handed remark regarding the origins of life, she unleashes community outrage and the particular distress of a troubled teenage boy. WAM invites audiences to consider their own beliefs and preconceptions in this intimate and artful play, which earned critical acclaim Off-Broadway at The Women’s Project.
