ANN ARBOR—Theatre NOVA will present the Michigan premiere of The How and the Why by Sarah Treem from February 1 through 24.

Two brilliant female evolutionary biologists share a bold, contrarian approach to their male-dominated field, but the younger scholar challenges the older woman’s work with a radical new theory—one that could change society’s basic understanding of female sexuality. This keenly perceptive play explores the difficult choices of modern American women and generational divides in feminism.

Directed by David Wolber, The How and the Why features Sayre Fox and Diane Hill. The production and design team includes Forrest Hejkal (scenic design), Daniel C. Walker (lighting design), Diane Hill (costume design), Carla Milarch (sound design), and Alona Shewach (stage manager, props). Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are $22, and Theatre NOVA continues its commitment to making theater accessible by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for those who need them. For tickets, visit TheatreNOVA.org, call 734-635- 8450 (Tuesdays through Fridays from noon until 3 p.m.), or buy them in person at the box office one hour before show time.
