The Matrix

What is the science behind first love? Two outsiders, a gifted Yemeni-American teenager at a poorly rated high school in the South Bronx and her disillusioned biology teacher, form an unlikely scientific partnership in the hope of securing her a scholarship. But when conflicts arise over differences in religion, culture and the boundaries of mentorship, their capacity to alter the course of each other's lives becomes greater than either had imagined.

"...Refreshingly, there is no physical attraction between teacher and pupil on this stage; their bond is strictly intellectual. He happens to be a devout atheist and she overflows with religious fervor and her culture, but not offensively so. Their discussions make for provocative listening. Viola Davis and her husband Julius Tennon, heads of JUVEE Productions are the producers of this timely, thought provoking work by the much awarded playwright Laure Maria Censabella. They were fortunate to secure Vicangelo Bulluck, a man well known in theatrical and political circles (he opened first the Hollywood branch of the NAACP}, to direct the flawless cast. If there’s a message here, it is that in spite of their differences, they develop a believable rapport and leave us with the good feeling that, if nothing else, common ground and ambition might eventually unite us all."
