What happens when you discover a profound ideological rift separates you from people you thought you knew? Director-turned-playwright Jonathan Spector explores the psychological fallout in his new play, “Eureka Day,” which premiered last week at Berkeley’s Aurora Theater. The plot centers on a fictional private school in Berkeley where all decisions are made by parent consensus. Everything is going fine until the parents are faced with an unexpectedly explosive -- and divisive -- topic: vaccination. Spector joins Forum to discuss the inspiration for the play, and the deeper themes within it.

Guests:
Jonathan Spector, playwright, "Eureka Day"
