Peer Into The Playbill

A panel of special guests discuss ideas and issues in the playbill.

The Failures and Successes of Science

In A Wrinkle In Time, the characters travel to places that punish mistakes, force conformity and destroy anything that doesn't meet its narrow definition of success. But without the potential for failure and curiosity, the scientific spirit is unable to follow its natural course. In a conversation with Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Donna Strickland, dramaturge Keith Barker, Professor Maydianne Andrade of the University of Toronto and Beck Lloyd from A Wrinkle in Time, consider the "art of science" and the importance of failure.
