New Works Festival Audience Member

Nan and the Lower Body

By Jessica Dickey
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

July 13, 2022—August 7, 2022


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?
