Written during the 2020 lockdown and based on the life and work of the playwright’s own husband, Dr. Nathan Wolfe, a virologist and pandemic specialist. It is an intimate play, that deals with real stories of love, family and loss, through the depths of scientific research, the prescience in the prediction of pandemics and the harrowing need to face one’s own mortality.
