Jennifer Alonzo of ODU's theatre department and Robin Blume from ODU's philosophy department partnered on the project to provide a full view of the issue.
According to the director, Alonzo, the play is interdisciplinary and asks us to look at a specific question from a variety of fields. "Something I want to bring to the undergraduates is the idea that all the disciplines have something to bring to the major questions in our world," she said.
The cast did a chant before the opening performance, according to Alonzo, that was brought to ODU by one of her first students. "It made me happy because it reminded me of my very first show here," she said.
Interpreting a play written by another person was nerve wrecking for Alonzo.

Dr. Jenifer Alonzo from Old Dominion University's theater department and artist in residence for this project, created the play which presents Anning's story in a very dramatic fashion. Actors, life-size fossil dinosaur puppets, a trapeze, movement, music, and special effects - all allow the audience to enter Anning's imagination. Poignantly portrayed is Anning's search for recognition as a scientist in a nineteenth-century world that discourages young women from pursuing such careers.
The play is unique in its purpose: to spur the curiosity of students, particularly young women, so they get excited about science and what a career in science has to offer. Alonzo has written the play so that elements link to elementary and middle school standards of learning in science, English, and social studies.
This collaboration with Untidy Gap Theatre has been made possible through a generous Artist Residency Grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts. The play is also slated for performances for VBCPS elementary students on the Thursday and Friday mornings prior to the public performance on Saturday.
In addition to spearheading performances of the play, Alonzo, through the artist in residence program, also conducted several workshops at Salem High. Teachers had the opportunity to explore rapport-building exercises, values discoveries, and listening tools to help them guide collaborative teams in all subjects. The workshop was action-oriented allowing participants to practice the communication and collaboration skills they learned by exploring immediate problems in the classrooms. Another workshop dealing with aerial effects is slated for Friday, October 21 from 7:30 to 10 a.m. in the school's auditorium.
Jenifer Alonzo is an Assistant Professor at Old Dominion University in the Department of Communication & Theatre Arts. Her focus is on working at "disciplinary intersections", developing workshops and products that use applied theatre techniques to help scientists better collaborate across disciplines. She also works with researchers to use theatre to communicate their research to public audiences. As a writer and director, Alonzo specializes in the creation of new work for the stage. In 2010, she created Fragments, a play that connected Hampton Roads military community to the university. Several others of her pieces have been presented at venues in Washington, D.C., Towson University, Baltimore, and at ODU. Alonzo has performed in more than 30 productions in cities from Denver to Baltimore.
