A recent work by a Tony Award-winner is coming to life in the hands of some Atlanta arts professionals (virtually, of course).
Just the facts
Horizon Theatre is presenting a “Zoom-style” filmed reading of Itamar Moses’ Completeness at 7:30 p.m. on September 25-26 and October 2-3. This play about a scientific look at romance marks the second collaboration between Horizon and Moses, having previously produced Moses’ musical Nobody Loves You in 2017.
The September 26 performance includes a post-show discussion with not only the actors and director, but the Tony Award-winning playwright Moses (The Band’s Visit) himself. On September 25, October 2 and 3, Horizon is partnering with Science ATL to give audiences access to scientists studying the types of computer science and molecular biology described in the play.
Elliot, a computer scientist, and Molly, a molecular biologist, are struggling with the realities of romance. When love is the answer, how do these two intellectuals manage to figure out the equation in the first place? When Elliot builds a computer program to help Molly with her research project, the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiment. You’ll see both their romantic triumphs and regressions mirrored in the science they create.
Under the direction of Heidi McKerley, the cast of Atlanta favorites includes Chris Hecke, Naima Carter Russell, Shelli Delgado, and Eric J. Little.
In the words of the theatre
“We’re delighted to be working with Itamar again, and thrilled that audiences will be able to meet him. His writing is smart, funny, and about people searching for deep connections. This is a wonderful show for our four talented actors. We’re proud of all of Itamar’s accomplishments, and happy to present this play that’s close to his heart.”-Producing Artistic Director Lisa Adler
