Summary

Hilary believes fervently that consciousness is more than the sum of our biology. When she receives a position at a prestigious think tank, she develops a novel experiment to prove that humans are intrinsically altruistic, but the results are something she never anticipated. 

Includes a post-show discussion with Mark Tramo, a neuroscientist, neurologist, and musician who is a professor in the UCLA Schools of Medicine, Music, and Letters & Science. 

Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in November 2019.

Good Premise, Excellent Cast.... Boring Product

Liked the premise and the cast... Was Bored by the play in the end. I'm glad that I didn't pay full price for it.
