A short play. When I read a magazine’s summary of this very interesting study–probably while standing in a grocery store checkout line–I realized that the research procedure must have been hilarious.
The study: “MHC-dependent mate preferences in humans,” by Claus Wedekind. Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1995:260(1359):245-249.
This play was workshopped by the Northwest Playwrights Guild, under the direction of Diane Englert. Rebecca Becker originated the Professor, and Acasia Wilson created Terri.
It was produced in New York by the Love Creek Festival, directed by Kathy Monahan, with Jennifer Drake and Riley Jones-Cohen;
and in Los Angeles at City College, directed by Louie Piday, with Melissa Courter and Nicole Mansour.
