Originally commissioned by the UNITAS Theatre Co. of Los Angeles who felt the plays themes were too controversial for a new company, the workshop was produced nevertheless by the cast and crew and since revised by its author. Told through reverse chronology in Depression-era New York City with layered scenes in a nearby town house one generation later, THE EQUATION engages the audience in a "how-done-it" about a birth rather than a death. This period "play of excavation" reveals a physician and his wife who attempt to adopt the infant son of a Russian woman desperate to give her child a shot at the American Dream glittering impossibly beyond her grasp. Has this dream devolved into the pursuit of conspicuous wealth, and at what cost?
