More on The DNA Trail

We wrote in an earlier post about The DNA Trail, a series of plays on the subject of DNA which will open in Chicago at the beginning of March. U4 project member Lina Patel, an actress and playwright, wrote one of the plays. She describes her experiences in a new article by journalist Howard Wolinksy which you can read here. You can find out more about the play and see the videos of Lina and the other playwrights talking about the process here. We wish Lina luck with the venture, and we shall look forward to hearing more about the plays in due course.
