The human microbome is a dynamic collection of bacteria, fungi, and viruses central to our survival, shaping every one of us from birth. Acclaimed writer Ed Yong wrote of this "forgotten organ" in his masterpiece "I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life." Now, his written word has provided inspiration for four nationally known playwrights who engaged in a 48-hour marathon of isolated furious writing, emerging with four newly-formed plays all based on this same book. Join us to hear from Ed Yong, get a taste of the plays that emerged from his book, and discuss with the artists and local scientists
