SPARC’s original play commission for Science@Play, Flatten the Curve (Working Title) is by Diana Burbano, a Colombian immigrant, celebrated playwright, Equity actor, and teaching artist at South Coast Repertory and Breath of Fire Latina Theatre Ensemble. Flatten the Curve follows a diverse team of scientists working together to solve our current global crisis. Burbano consulted with several local scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Lab while researching and writing the commissioned work. Michael Wayne Rice, SPARC Resident Director, will direct the world premiere reading. Burbano, Rice, and SPARC Founder Lisa A. Tromovitch and a team of local scientists have been working together for over a year to create this original piece that takes us inside the world and lives of those at the forefront of solving life’s biggest mysteries.
