Q&A: The Making of 'The Great Immensity'

Publish Date: 
Saturday, May 15, 2010 (All day)

While exploring the Panama Canal in a small tourist boat, Steve Cosson and Michael Friedman were startled by a massive container ship suddenly passing by, rocking them violently in its wake. Painted on the hull in Chinese characters, its name was boldly inscribed as "The Great Immensity." Cosson and Friedman later decided this would be the name of a play, serving as a metaphor for the impact of climate change on the Earth. The work-in-progress, "The Great Immensity," will be performed at McCarter's Berlind Theatre on Saturday, April 17.
