  • Main Stage
  • All performances start at 10:30 a.m.

Scientific breakthroughs allow us to know more about ourselves than ever before. But how much do we want to know — and who gets to decide how that information is used? Based on a true story, Informed Consent takes us into the personal and national debate about science vs. belief and whether our DNA is our destiny.

Informed Consent was originally commissioned by The Ensemble Studio Theatre/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project. Additional funding for this production was also provided by the EST/Sloan Project.
