A World Premier of Informed Consent

Friday, March 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Blvd.

Author: Deborah Zoe Laufer
Director: Sean Daniels

Based on a true story of the Havasupai Tribe, Informed Consent looks at the personal and national debate about DNA research and responsibility. An ambitious geneticist is hired to solve why a Native American tribe is being devastated by diabetes. However, the research opens up issues of genetic “ownership” and threatens to destroy the tribe’s most sacred traditions. This heartwarming and honest tale explores the question of just how much knowledge is too much. flyer
