LA Theatre Works, Sun. 1/16/22 at 10:00 pm, "Paradise" by Laura Maria Censabella

Yasmeen Al-Hamadi is a Muslim, Yemeni-American senior at a struggling inner-city Bronx high school. Dr. Guy Royston is her disaffected science teacher, a former Evangelical with a mysterious past. An unlikely research team, together they embark on a neurological study, leading to stormy conflicts over love, faith and culture. "Paradise" was a finalist for the 2016 Saroyan/Paul Playwriting Prize for Human Rights.

Paradise is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series of science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.
