Live Staged Reading of feature screenplay In Love With Einstein by Linda Shayne

Writer Linda Shayne will join us via Skype for a Q&A after the reading!

Since I was a child I have been writing stories, plays, poems and movies, there has always been a desire to understand this relatively short time we have to live on this planet. Studying history, psychology and cultural anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley, and writing papers on array of sub-cultures, only strengthened my desire to express the human condition. My writing often focuses on the conflicts and consequences of romantic as well as scientific and moral choices we each make daily and the magnitude those choices will have. - Linda Shayne
