THE ETHICS OF SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES
Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30pm
Caryl Churchill’s intellectual thriller A Number is set “in a strikingly familiar future,” where certain scientific and technological advances allow people to attempt to fix past mistakes by starting over—in a way. At this timely From Page to Stage event, our guest expert will dive into the ethics of scientific discoveries. As we make great progress in the realm of technology, are scientists stopping to ask the right questions? Just because we can do something, does that necessarily mean that we should? Come tackle these urgent questions and learn about the latest moral dilemmas facing today’s greatest minds.

For Next to Normal
Sunday, May 19 at 2pm
Hosted by the Wilmette Theatre | 1122 Central Ave, Wilmette
After losing his job and wife, and spending time in a mental institution, Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) winds up living with his parents (Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver). He wants to rebuild his life and reunite with his wife, but his parents would be happy if he just shared their obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles. Things get complicated when Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), who offers to help him reconnect with his wife, if he will do something very important for her in exchange.
