New Works Festival Audience Member


Nan and the Lower Body

By Jessica Dickey
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

July 14—August 8, 2021


A pioneering doctor wants a full-time successor. A loving husband wants a full-time family. And Nan wants it all. She is the brilliant lab assistant of good-humored Dr. Papanicolaou, the life-saving inventor of the Pap smear. In this frank and funny, engaging audience favorite from our New Works Festival, Nan has mysteries to unravel and life-changing choices to make. But who can unwind the mysteries of the heart?

Lucie Stern Theatre

1305 Middlefield Rd. Palo Alto, CA 94301

The parking lot at the Lucie Stern Community Center is under partial construction, and can only be entered from the rear of the theatre, near the intersection of Hopkins Avenue and Harriet Street. While there are parking spaces available, they are somewhat limited, so we recommend giving yourself an additional half hour to find a spot in the streets of the surrounding neighborhood. For patrons with mobility issues, we recommend utilizing the drop-off area at the front of the Community Center, at the corner of Middlefield Road and Melville Avenue.
