Theater Review: “An Experiment with an Air Pump”

“An Experiment with an Air Pump” plays through August 25, 2019 at La Jolla Playhouse’s Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre, 2910 La Jolla Village Drive (on the UCSD campus).

Count on Backyard Renaissance Theatre Company to come up with thought-provoking drama. This time, it’s British playwright Shelagh Stephenson’s 1997 “An Experiment with an Air Pump,” a time-jumping consideration of the ethics of science in general and of medical research and genetic testing in particular.

Toss in clever dialogue and a bit of a mystery, and you’ve got a winner.
