Deborah Stein


Progressive modern theatre does not shrink from taking its scripts from real science. Chimera is the story of Jennifer Saunders who learns of her rare medical condition, and the struggles to maintain a sense of self. Deborah Stein’s critically acclaimed play is an ambitious, frightening and compelling take on timeless, pivotal issues of the human experience. Her inventive and funny solo performer reflects the biological, psychological and emotional ordeals in the face of the inescapability of genetic disease.
