Science and religion collide when a high-school biology teacher relocates from Manhattan to a small Kansas town whose citizens are fighting to recover from a devastating tornado. This fish out of water isn’t prepared for the different kind of storm she churns up when she makes an offhand comment in class about the origins of life. Award-winning playwright Catherine Trieschmann explores and respects all sides of the debate over creationism vs. evolution, while spinning a very human story about starting over.
