An electrifying new play by one of the most exciting voices in American theater, Informed Consent is an "urgent, challenging, and of-the-moment" (Cleveland Plain Dealer) drama about one woman's quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life, inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country's largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon.

Informed Consent features scenic design by Wilson Chin, costume design by Jacob A. Climer, lighting design byMatthew Richards, original music and sound design by Broken Chord, projection design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew, and casting by Stephanie Klapper Casting.

"In the past year alone, Deborah Zoe Laufer has had over 20 productions of her plays performed throughout the country," says Primary Stages Artistic Director Andrew Leynse. "We are thrilled to present Informed Consent in its Off-Broadway Premiere in a co-production with Ensemble Studio Theatre, who commissioned and developed the playas a part of their Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science & Technology Project.
