A Wire In Water

By Justin Warner

Directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde

Please note that due to scheduling conflicts in the building, the April reading will be held on the 3rd Monday of the month.

Did Alexander Graham Bell steal a key element of the telephone patent? That question was hotly disputed in headlines and multiple trials in the late 19th century, and some scholars today believe he did. A WIRE IN WATER explores the complicated relationships and conflicting interests that may have forced Bell's hand, and his struggle to neutralize his actions after the fact.
