TechnoPlays Reading

Magellanica: A New and Accurate Map of the World

by EM Lewis

directed by Sturgis Warner

In 1985, an international group of scientists travel to Antarctica to find out if there really is a hole in the sky. Magellanica: A New and Accurate Map of the World is a fictional account of a very real moment in history, when the existence of a hole in the ozone layer became the subject of international debate.  It follows eight scientists and engineers who spend the winter at an international research station at the South Pole — eight and a half months, with no way in or out, and a question of global import looming.  What will they find?  And what does it mean?

Please join us for a reading of this epic Antarctic adventure by the talented EM Lewis on

Sunday, June 22nd at 7pm

18W 18th Street, Room 504
