The play 

This end of season performance is an exciting collaboration between UCalgary Drama & Geoscience. It explores the lives of Marie Tharpe (1920-2006/ ocean cartographer), Eunice Foote (1819-1998/ atmospheric warming), Dollie Radler Hall (1897-1995/ discovery of oil using seismic energy), and Florence Bascom (1862-1945/ Geoscience educator) four under-recognized female scientists and their discoveries, and how the role of gender influenced their practice and how history recorded - or forgot them. This project will be featured as part of the Alchemy Festival, the Geoscience conference (July 3-7) and World Stage Design Conference (August 6-16th).

4 Female Identified actors.  Any age, shape, size, ability, and ethnicity. All are welcome. 


For the Audition

Please present a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue and share a story about you and science. Could be an anecdote about Grade 11 chemistry class, maybe your at-home dissection of a spider when you were eight, or your life-long fascination with quantum physics.  Should be personal, and no more than 3 minutes.  Should make you smile 😊
