The play wasn't exactly what I expected, it was more about personal drama between two women than women in science, but I really enjoyed it. The 2 actresses both did a great job.

A surprisingly good play very well acted and completely absorbing. Touch on all kinds of hot button issues -- women in science, work v family, academia. Would love to see something else by this playwrite.

Great performance. As a scientist, it was great to see a play about scientists. Both actresses were fantastic and the plot was interesting. Well worth seeing.

I liked it, although it's not quite what I expected, the theory and the story line are pretty interesting.

Intense look at relationship between a mother and daughter. Felt like it was written by an MIT nerd with all the intellectual science in it, which at times took away from the interaction, but mostly didn't. Only 3 stars b/c I get annoyed with how...continued

It's a great play! I was captivated for the whole two hours. I usually start to mentally check out after awhile in most plays but not this one. The actors accurately portrayed many issues female scientists face.

I enjoyed the acting and writing. As a female scientist, I thought it was an excellent discussion of the "trials" of being a scientist, as well as the nature of scientific theory and debate. Some themes resonated and others felt outdated, but I...continued

What appeared to be a play on scientific research, especially evolutionary biology, turned out to be a human drama involving a mother and her daughter. It was for the most part believable even though the younger actor seemed to react to situations...continued
