121: Measuring the mass of a rom-com. Structure, process, and science with playwright Allan Maule.

It would be unusual for me to associate astrophysics with romantic comedy, but Allan Maule does in his new play, THE WEIGHT OF EVERYTHING WE KNOW, a romantic comedy about the kilogram changing mass.

In this episode, Allan talks about his approach to writing and researching a science-related rom-com, the structure of the play, the unexpected comfort that this genre offers in difficult times, and more.

Allan Maule is a Durham-based playwright and writer with more than twelve years of writing experience for the stage and digital media. Favorite productions of his plays include EverScape (NYC Fringe 2015 and Sonorous Road Theater), Two Late (Carrboro Arts Center 10×10 Festival), Tales and Fermentations (Seed Art Share), and Framing the Shot (Sonorous Road Theater).
