Danny Bolero and Cynthia Bastidas in Informed Consent

Gulfshore Playhouse presents “Informed Consent,” a drama written by Deborah Zoe Laufer and directed locally by Kristen Coury, on stage at The Norris Center Jan. 9-31. First produced at Cleveland Play House and the Geva Theatre Center in 2014, “Informed Consert” played at Primary Stages in New York City in 2015.

Its the story of Jillian, a woman suffering from a disease that will steal her memory away from her, leaving her husband and small child helpless in the face of it. It’s also about a Native American tribe warring against a myriad of challenges that have dramatically changed its way of life and battling the scientist who would steal secrets locked within the entity they hold most dear: their own blood. And finally, it’s a play about a scientist desperately trying to reconcile the means through which information is acquired, knowing that the consequence is people being hurt in the process.
