From Sarah Treem, the writer-producer of House of Cards, comes this smart and compelling play about science, family and the survival of the fittest. In The How and the Why, two women -- Zelda and Rachel -- meet for the first time on the eve of a national conference. Both are brilliant evolutionary biologists who share a passion for science and a contrarian approach to their male-dominated field, but when the young scholar challenges the older woman's theory about the way people regard sex, mysteries about their relationship begin to unfold. This engaging production offers differing views on evolution, feminism and generational divides in modern America -- and it will likely keep you talking long after it's over. The How and the Why is coming to Theater J at the Edlavitch Jewish Community Center in Washington, D.C.
