Theatre meets science as a diverse group of playwrights each agree to take a genealogical DNA test in this identity defying collection of short plays.
For this adventurous project, Chicago's Silk Road Rising theater commissioned the playwrights to revisit their assumptions about identity politics and the perennial"who am I" question.
Self, family, community, ethnicity, race, history, geography--it's all up for grabs! Come see where the DNA Trail leads to.
