How The World Began is a sharp, thoughtful and mysterious play set in a small town in rural Kansas that’s been ripped apart by a tornado. Faith and science clash as a biology teacher newly arrived from Manhattan is confronted by her damaged, articulate pupil Micah.
Des Kennedy directed How The World Began at the Arcola Theatre in a production supported by his Out of Joint Directing Award bursary.
“Sparks fly spectacularly in this drama by the American writer Catherine Trieschmann. A pregnant biology teacher who has offended small-town creationists begins to fear for her own survival and that of her unborn child. The play is gripping, disturbing and relevant. Trieschmann’s writing is taut and laced with irony” -The Times
