The play follows Dr. Eleanor Kiesler, who is finally doing the important work she’s been dreaming of for years. As that work starts to destroy her life, mysterious radio transmissions begin invading her home. The play follows Kiesler as she tries to find the balance she needs to keep it together and questions what the life of Hollywood legend Hedy Lamarr has to do with it all.

The play will be free to attend, but donations to the Alpha Psi Omega student organization are encouraged. The Alpha Psi Omega – Psi Nu cast is committed to the growth and development of S&T theater and all related groups. As a service organization, its mission is to see the theater thrive and to help the members of the theater achieve personal goals within the arts.
