Sleep Rock Thy Brain, a play by Rinne Groff, Lucas Hnath and Anne Washburn and commissioned by Actors Theatre of Louisville, is slated to premiere during the 37th annual Humana Festival of New American Plays. Each playwright created a one-act play based on sleep science and flight after working with UofL doctors in the sleep lab to learn more about the science of sleep. Following the premiere of this play in the Humana Festival this spring, the UofL Theatre Arts Department will mount an immediate second production as part of its main stage season in the spring.
Following the initial concept generation of this play, a committee headed by UofL Provost Dr. Shirley Willihnganz and Actors Theatre Managing Director Jennifer Bielstein and comprised of faculty, deans and staff from both UofL and Actors Theatre was brought together to developed a unique multi-disciplinary communitywide partnership with Actors Theatre, University of Louisville Medical School, University of Louisville Department of Theatre Arts, ZFX Flying Effects, Lincoln Performing Arts School, and Jefferson Public Schools.
