Theatre9/12 at Trinity Parish
609 8th Ave. at James St., Seattle

Written by artistic director, Charles Waxberg (A Shade of Green, The Equation and the adaptations You Are Right If You Think and The Oddwoman of Pioneer Square), VAXED is a continuous, real time, play scrutinizing racism but without enemies, promulgation, didacticism or reproach. The 3a.m. conflict between two renowned scientists, brother and sister, aims to stimulate thought and conversation post performance as audiences identify and imagine themselves facing those characters' final choices.

Directed by Paul O'Connell (Seminar, Death of the Maiden) and featuring Cynthia Geary (Blithe Spirit, Death and the Maiden, Emmy Award nominee) and Theatre9/12 member Tyler Scowcroft (Six Degrees of Separation), VAXED which is often comedic as the siblings attempt scientific rationale at a high-emotion crossroad, "is deceptively constructed like a stepped laboratory experiment," Mr. O'Connell observes.

"Playwright Charles Waxberg wrote this incredible script that wrestles with profound issues of scientific ethics as well as existential ones, with all the seriousness of the great philosophers and theologians, accentuated with wit and humor, in sophisticated dialogue...Often times hilarious, often times disturbing, but always profound, two siblings confront some of the limitations of science, of its ethics, and play power games. Each are entrenched in their own positions and along the way their views on evolutionary biology and its relationship to "otherness" is explored. It is also highly topical, in a way one would not expect from the title...I highly recommend Vaxed; it is so stimulating that it asks more questions than it answers." --DramaInTheHood, Marie Bonfils
