Overview

Virologist Nathan Wolfe, named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for his work tracking viral pandemics, has hunted viruses from the jungles of Cameroon to the basement of the CDC. Hear his story – presented as cinematic digital theatre – as he tracks the threats that come from without and within. A blazingly intelligent, wryly witty, and warm look at the thrill of discovery, whether it’s a new virus or the treasures of your own family.

Playwright Lauren Gunderson delivers a theatrical experience built of and for this moment in time – a time-jumping tale based on the life and work of Nathan Wolfe (who also happens to be her husband).
