the limitations of science

This afternoon, I have a job interview, and then I’m going to see a reading of Elaine Romero’s play WALK INTO THE SEA, at the Goodman, as part of their Latino Theater Festival. Ricardo Gutierrez, who I know from the LYDIA cast, is in it. Here’s the theater’s blurb:

The fault lines in Karl and Virginia’s marriage are revealed when their son Edward, diagnosed with autism, retreats behind a mask of silence. Karl, a microbiologist who specializes in viruses, buries himself in his work, while Virginia embraces religion. This haunting new play offers a complex and moving look at the limitations of science and the importance of family.
