My play Endeavor Mind at the Den Theatre in Chicago only has a 3 more performances left. I am so impressed with what the The Plagiarists, director Jen Poulin, and the talented cast have done with this world premiere production. If you are in or near Chicago and haven’t yet seen the show I hope you can make it this Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night at 7:30. All tickets are pay-what-you-can.
Endeavor Mind is about a woman who, after putting her career on hold for motherhood, volunteers for an experimental brain augmentation procedure in hopes of fulfilling her true potential. Endeavor Mind depicts women in STEM tackling difficult issues of privacy, ethics, and the unintentional side effects of technological progress.
And one of our cast members added this statistical overview:
We’re a cast of 75% women, and 75% API/South Asian actors, and 100% heart.
Although this is the last chance to the premiere production of Endeavor Mind, I hope it won’t be the last chance ever to see this play. I hope to find other theatre’s interested in producing this timely, female-driven play. If you work for or know of a theatre company who might be interested in producing Endeavor Mind, contact me at kimzdale [at] gmail.com.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll see The Plagiarists’ wonderful production this weekend. Click here to reserve your tickets.
