An Experiment With An Air Pump at The Island Theater

Don’t miss: An Experiment With An Air Pump at the Island Theater!

Showing May 3-12, 2024

About the production: An Experiment with an Air Pump is a play by British playwright Shelagh Stephenson inspired by the painting An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump by Joseph Wright. The play questions the basic principles of scientific (medical) research, such as the right of the scientist to cross ethical limits: the right to perform dissection on the recently deceased (1799) and use of embryos in stem-cell research (1999). The play also implicitly deals with gender roles and questions the stereotypes of women scientists.

Doors open at 1:30 PM. Show starts at 2 PM
