Science, family and survival of the fittest. Those are the underlying themes of an upcoming play at North Platte Community College. 

NPCC's theater department will present,"The How and the Why" in April. The play was written by Sarah Treem, who also wrote such dramas as "The Affair," "House of Cards" and "In Treatment."   

The play will begin at 7:30 p.m. for four nights, April 5-8.

In "The How and the Why," two evolutionary biologists, Zelda and Rachel, meet on the eve of a national conference. Both share a passion for science and a contrarian approach to their male-dominated field.

However, when the younger scholar challenges the older biologist's theories, mysteries about their relationship begin to unfold. 

The production offers differing views on evolution, feminism and generational divides in modern America and is likely to keep audience members talking long after it is over. 

"This play will be an intimate view of several feminist issues, but will also touch the humanity in all of us -- man or woman," said Ritch Galvan, NPCC theater instructor. "The play is a two-character study, and the theater space will be used in a new and interesting way so the audience can be drawn into the lives of these two women." 

Bea Webster and Wendi Stover will star in the production.

Tickets can be purchased at the door at a cost of $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. NPCC students, faculty and staff will be admitted for free.
