Synopsis: “The dramatically compelling argument spins off sparks about stem cell research, race and the Human Genome Project. But the gripping heart of Cassandra Medley’s “Relativity” is a showdown between relatives in a battle of the umbilical cord…

“Relativity” is a full-fledged drama bristling with challenging ideas and emotional complexity. It’s a brave play. Not only has Medley set her drama, as one character puts it “on the cut of the cutting edge” of research, but she’s also grappling with the very touchy subject of reverse racism…

In Medley’s “Relativity”, passionate mass and intellectual energy equals pretty compelling drama.” Robert Hurwitt (San Francisco Chronicle)
