Elephant Run District brings you The hERD Podcast, a platform for audiences to experience work by playwrights and artists performed live in New York City and then streamed around the globe on the internet. The live NYC audience is an important element of this project and we are happy you will join us! ERD kicks off its New Play Podcast Series at the Tank with Dominick DeGaetano's suspenseful, sci-fi play "Turing Test," directed by Aimee Todoroff.
About the play:
David McKenna has a baby on the way; he needs money. Unluckily, the former enfant terrible is only qualified to do one thing: teach poetry. He lands a position at a large research university, but only after agreeing to a strange request: to tutor a single eager student, Adam, while under observation, as part of a top secret government experiment. Soon, events beyond their control, and the increasing demands of the experiment, will force David and Adam to come to a reckoning with the meaning and intent of their lessons, and the consequences such knowledge brings.
