Deborah Zoe Laufer's provocative new play asks: are our identities defined by our bodies or by our most sacred stories?

Ambitious geneticist Jillian races to solve scientific mysteries that could save both an ancient people and her own family. She jumps at the chance to do groundbreaking research on a Native tribe in the Grand Canyon whose members are ravaged by diabetes, but her research threatens to destroy the tribe's most sacred traditions. At the same time, Jillian and her husband confront a time bomb lurking in her own DNA – and possibly their four-year-old daughter's. This provocative new play from acclaimed playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer asks: are our identities defined by our bodies or by our most sacred stories?
