Maine Playwrights Reading Series: IN McCLINTOCK’S CORN by Carolyn Gage
When: Friday, September 24, 2021 – 7:30 PM
Where: Online via Zoom
A public online reading of Maine Playwrights Festival alum Carolyn Gage’s new play In McClintock’s Corn.
Set in a cornfield, the play follows gender-non-conforming geneticist Barabara McClintock and her companion/partner Harriet Creighton through McClintock’s revolutionary quest to understand diversity in nature and to reframe “deviance” as an expression of natural variance.
This is the first installment in 2021-22 of Acorn’s bi-monthly reading series for full-length plays by Maine writers. Due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions, each event in this season’s reading series will be assessed on a case-by-case basis as to if it will be presented in-person or streamed online. For In McClintock’s Corn on September 24, we will be streaming online. Access to the online event is free, and donations will be accepted to help support the reading series.
