A contemporary drama based on actual events, Tooth and Claw is a compelling exploration of evolution, extinction and the ever-present nature of Darwin’s “struggle for life.” Biologist Schuyler Baines (Cynthia Watros of Lost) arrives full of ideas and the best intentions, in the Galapagos Islands to run the Darwin Research Center. When she becomes aware of an exploding black market in sea cucumbers that threatens to destroy the islands’ fragile ecosystem, Schuyler shuts the industry down, sparking a deadly, survival-of-the-fittest conflict with native fishermen. All performances will be recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org. Tooth and Claw is part of “Relativity,” a series of science-themed plays recorded by L.A. Theatre Works with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
