Dan Born's "Unghosting the Chromosome" Reading on Sep. 12

The Midwest Dramatist Center is once again presenting live stage readings by its MDC playwrights.

This month's reading is Unghosting the Chromosome by Dan Born. It will be held at Prospero's Books at 1800 W 39th Street at 7:30pm on Monday, September 12, 2022.

Unghosting the Chromosome is based on the life of a little known but ground-breaking scientist from the turn of the 20th century, Walter Sutton. Sutton's theories of the chromosome, developed while he was still an undergraduate at the University of Kansas, established a theoretical basis for Mendel's famous experiments and laid the foundation of for the modern science of genetics. While at KU, he also found the time to be a member of that school's very first basketball team. 

The play was developed from a play by Stanley Nelson, Professor of Anatomy at KUMC.
