A leading playwright and a pioneering virologist marry science and art on stage


A new interactive theatrical production, “The Catastrophist,” follows the story of a scientist thrilled by discovery and pained by loss. It was written by playwright Lauren Gunderson about her husband’s life as a leading researcher into the causes and effects of pandemics. Jeffrey Brown has the story for our ongoing arts and culture series, “CANVAS.”
